Thanks Mate! The stove turned out looking a bit “Steampunk”, not planned but thought it looked cool anyway. It had performance issues (vaporizing) in the cold but that was rectified with a priming tray. As for Pack/base weight, I’ve started working on that! Just finished a new summer weight TQ made out of Nobul1…11.6oz! UQ soon to follow, I’ll try not to lose the coolness though

I've said it before and I'll say it again....it's good to have a friend with serious DIY skills.

Glad we brought the Recliners cause I REALLY needed that break! Snowshoeing has a way of telling you how out of shape you are in a hurry!
