    Great report there Raul, aka Water Monkey, sorry couldn't resist that was too funny! Thanks for the update on Snow White, how cool was that to meet her while on the trail! Sound's like it was a good time, thanks for sharing, can't wait to watch the vid/s!

    Glad you guys liked it.

    Videos are cut just need to convert and upload to youtube which takes about 2 hours each video with the whole series at 5 videos. Tried something different last night with the first video but it doesnt make it HD for youtube so the process is still same.

    Gear check:

    Used everything except the head beanie.... at 60* plus you dont need it. It got to about 65* and you really dont need the 3 season yeti I was toasty.

    I got 5 solid days out of 4oz of fuel. Didnt need the other 4oz bottle. At 80* I'm getting just under 1/2 ounce per burn for 2 cups of water. Looking at 2 squeezes for the Bongo CAB per cook.

    The SpinnUL doesnt make much noise at all. Just needs some time and it was for the most part quiet.

    Got sick of the trail mix... again. The ice cream break didnt help that fact. Ate all my snickers, m&m, got sick of the cliff bars.... will look for better options for snacks and I need to vary the diet. Got apetite fatigue from the same thing every day except dinner.

    BTW Mountain House Lasagna is AWESOME. Draw back the cheese gets on everthing and doesnt come off without a fight. use the mountain house packet and not ANY of your cook kit bowls.

    Raul your using the Bongo Pro right?!
    The two squeezes amount too___oz? I'm curious as I have switched to using a MB QMH cook kit with the Mini Atomic and I only need one cup of water for my meal in a freezer bag with a cozy from Paul at AHE and I'm only using about a 1/4oz of fuel for a Knorr side dish meal! I was using the MH meals but they were getting a little too expensive for my tastes!

    I'm using the original bongo before the pro was developed with a tiny base. I like it a lot as it is way more compact than Tinny's new CAB stoves. One squeeze is about 1/4 oz maybe a little less.

    The point of a journey, is not to arrive.
