Thoughts and/or suggestions anyone:question:
What are you taking for food?
Take a few candy bars... good old fashioned snickers or whatever your favorite is. Never again will I be without snickers for a pick-me-up. I don't know who cliff is but I swear by day 6 last year if I had run into someone who introduced himself as cliff I would have punched him in the face.
I am slowly aquiring my gear as I am new to pack style hunts. I am trying to do so while keeping the wife and wallet happy at the same time. I was able to pick up a new in the box, unoppened, SOTO OD-R-1 Micro Regulator Stove for 30$. Looking at it, it seemed very light, compact and very user friendly as it has an ignitor on it as well. I was just wondering if I got a good deal and if anyone has experiance with this model good or bad. I am also looking at picking up a Thermorest Pro-Lite 4, supposedly 2 1/2 inches thick and rolls to the size of a nalgene. Any thoughts on that?
Since you have experience with the SOTO OD-R-1; how fastdoes it go through fuel? Also, what do you use for cooking/boiling water? Itseems like a lot of people like the JETBOIL canister as it holds just enoughfor a mountain house and a cup of tea/coffee. Does that same canister work onthe SOTO? I also see that there are some coffee presses that might work onthere so I am excited about that.$30 is a very good deal! Retail is 75 i believe. Ive used this stove for the past 2 years on all my sheep and mountain hunts with zero problems. Performs great in cold weather as well. Good purchase, best of luck to you.

Also for anyone who might have one and can shed some light.. I just picked up abrand new Alps Mountaineering Mystic 1.0 backpackers tent and footprint for50$. REI had them for 140$. I know it’s not a hilleberg or North Face but itlooks pretty legit and seems to pack down small and is rather light. With thefootprint I could go minimalist with the fly and print only to save a pound orso. Just wondering if anyone has one or any experience with them?
Sorry for all the questions on every purchase, I am down range in Afghanistanand doing everything over the web so when I get home I am good to go. Plus Iwould like to use the many experiences of others to not fail to miserably on myfirst attempt as I know each trip will be a learning experience of some sort.Thanks again for all the help guys and gals.
I have a couple of friends that have the SOTO OD-R-1 Micro stove and they have been very happy with them. The stove will burn less than a large canister after a week of hunting. Not sure what the daily burn rate is though.
For a pot we have been using the Stoic Ti Kettle, it will boil enough for your Mt House and a cup of coffee or whatever you want to drink, plus a pack of ramen fits tight in it! They are on sale at backcountry.com right now for a steal.
Anyone have any experiance with the Neoair Trekker by Therm -a- rest or the Mystic 1p pack tent by Alps Mountaineering?
