OK
A bit like cars in the 70s and 80s then, empty vodka bottles in the boot

Sounds like a first wife I just barely avoided on the highway of life!

The Professor was an Australian too, but he died a few years ago. I remember a documentary they made on his life while he was still working.
he gave up academia and became a preacher

Fire and Woodstoves / Re: galvanized chimney or stove

I use a wood stove I can cook on with more than one pot, that I also use to heat my tent with. I never bring a camp stove(gas stove) even in the summer... I never had any problem of cooking/baking/melting snow/boiling water and all that for four people. I can stand in my tent and sleep 3 comfortably and 4 if need be. I camped a bellow -40c\-40f....

Moondog, Nice find on that arctic website - huge number of pics, all sorts of information on how the Inuit live in current times.   Good stuff!

It is one of the drawbacks of being on the other side of average, it's going to get worse if my pants size starts to match my chest size. Thanx for getting back to me on this. Makers should keep an archive of old models for a while IMO
That said if it is the same size as the new membrain model it is a little narrow to wear anything except longjohns, only 165 around the chest

So another report on my adventures on outdoorsman forum and it will be my last. My last post on outdoors man was on my thread explaining how to paint a stove. I posted the following on the my new paint thread.


Maybe asking for agreement is to much.
 Who packs gas along?
http://www.wintertrekking.com/community/index.php?topic=4221.0
Are there any backpackers that carry 2 stoves, one wood burning for heat and the other gas for cooking?
http://www.outdoorsmenforum.ca/showthread.php?t=299139.
Has anyone seen a wood burning camp cookstove that directs 100% of the heat to the cook top that also has a chimney so it can be used inside a shelter?
Has anyone seen a stove/chimney described above that weighs 1.5 lbs. or less?

The post before this one said if I remember it right.
Maybe we can all agree that a new or painted stove and chimney is safe to use after a hot first burn.

The main idea I got from those pages is that the native population wore fewer layers but that those layers were much warmer

Moondog with all respects, I have absolutely no idea.  Best guess with XXL sizing is: probably not.  Unless you planned on zipping two of the things together.
