why I carry an integrated stove system

In recent years I use either my Jetboil Minimo or MSR Reactor.

There are pros and cons to both.

I long ago gave away to a friend my dirty, fussy, problematic MSR Whisperlite International. (My friend is still using it. He loves to tinker.)

For me the efficiency, speed, and ease of use make it worth extra weight and space.

Never too cold to cook.

proposed – Escalante Canyons National Park, Utah

Most in the hiking community hate what Donald Trump and his minions have done in Utah– shrinking the Bears Ears National Monument by 85%.

But here’s some good news out of Utah.

Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, plans to introduce legislation to create a new national park in a piece of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. …

The proposed Escalante Canyons National Park …

The size and exact location of the proposed park is unclear.  …

Only Congress can set aside land for a national park, while a president has power under the Antiquities Act to designate a national monument.

 

Rep. Chris Stewart proposes national park in Grand Staircase-Escalante

It could be that this is just a GOP diversion to deflect criticism.

On the other hand, some future Congress could move on this proposal to right the wrongs done by the Trump regime.
