    I do have a couple of alcohol stove set-ups that work great, both homemade and store-bought, and I switch around some. I'd likely stick with alcohol more if the denatured stuff didn't smell so bad!

    I second peakbagger's "save the change" method. When I pay cash, I only use bills - all change goes in the jar. That usually adds up to 1 or 2 car payments a year!

    I like my kilt, but only use it when it's chilly. Keeps the thighs dry (seems like that's what gets the wettest) and warm without overheating, plenty of ventilation. But then again, I carry an...

    No, it's usually not. As previous posters have said, most often it's markers for trail work.

    Mine is the ULA Equipment model. Not much to say - it does the job, has an elastic waist band and velcro closure. Light, tough, not too expensive, sexy as all get out.

    Yep, and then he'd obsess about weight and cut the strings off his tea bags! Still a classic, though, and what my Dad (and therefore me)used to learn from.
