    Don't understate how much you've given to this community, either...we owe you a lot. You had your webpage and forum before HF (or my page) existed! You helped shape the community just with that, with the Ion stove, and now by showing that a sub-pound comfortable kit is doable. (And now that you've done the research for us, it'll be pretty easy for the rest of us!) Thanks for all of that, and for posting it.

    Probably not that small, but I bet it fits in a neck knife sheath!

    awesome rig. The r&d on cuban for tarps keeps looking more promising. Cuban is looking like the new king of UL.

    I didn't make pictures of every part. I've got it all packed up because I'm heading into the Smokies today for a hike. But I'll try getting some pics of the parts tonight in camp and post them later when I get back. Maybe I'll try making a video too. I'm not as experienced at that like Shug, Griz, and others.

    Actually I made that typo years ago and decided it wasn't a typo but what I really mean. Now I do it on purpose .

    While I'm waiting for my boy to get ready to leave I'll see if I can work up a cost sheet.
