    :lol: We call them hippie chokers.
    You get those stoves going just smoking hot and roaring and they will start huffing a puffing like a train. You need to put a good layer of gravel in the bottom of them so you don't burn the metal out of the bottom of the stove, that is a rookie mistake.

    I really use what ever I can find where I am setting up camp. I dump it it out after each use, I don't haul it home with me there are enough places to get a few shovel loads of gravel in this country. These stoves don't last that long but they will heat up a tent, and hold a fire all night if you fill it up and close all the vents and let it burn.

    They are hands down the best bang for your buck for a tent stove. I don't run one anymore, use a heavier duty one that will last more than a couple years. But can't really say anything bad about those old air rights.

    I wish I'd known - they were visible as far south as Washington but you need to get out of the city to see them.

    Went to see venom 2, noticed it in the sky on the drive back. Clear as day at times. Was putting on a show!

    I was actually at Home Depot fitting 8' 2x4's into my Ascent, annoyed that the seats don't go down flat, looking at that sweet backside with envy! :D

    Out for a run this morning. Having these kind of views in my backyard is amazing (for those of you noticing the Astro turf in the foreground - this is a popular launch spot for hang gliders, I guess and the Astro turf keeps the land from eroding).

    One of my senior engineers paragliders every weekend on the coast of Oregon, he has some amazing videos and pictures of the views there.

    The pics are great but you really need to cut it out with the giant dog paw logo :rofl: Are you worried your photos are going to end up on national geographic without your permission? lol

    I've had much worse for copyright logos in the past. That being said, it's relatively easy to clone/healstamp them out if one were inclined to do so, and there's not really much need for them if your images are relatively small and < 100 dpi.

    Yeah Photoshop would make those vanish in a click. Just a distraction on some nice photos imo :o

    We had a lot of rain yesterday, which turned to snow last night. 20cm down after 20cm was melted away.
