General Winter Camping Discussion / Re: Boiling water...
« on: February 22, 2008, 01:10:54 pm »
I use an MSR Dragonfly regularly for winter camping. Works great - I've used it down to -26F without a problem. I have not timed how long it takes to boil water in the winter. Of course, water source (snow/ice/liquid), air temp, pot shape/size, and wind all affect boil time. I generally bring two light pots. One strictly for boiling water and the other if I have to do any cooking.

NOLS suggests that you plan on 1/4 liter of fuel per person per day. That's about what I go through for cooking and boiling water.

I picked up the Fisher Snowbounds (189cm), Salomon Adventure 5 Boots, and Raid Bindings (manual) mounted for about $440 a couple of months ago. After looking at a lot of sites, I thought the price to be fair.
