Thank you for your comments, suggestions and support
Just came back from six days on the AT going south from Hwy 76(Ga) to Neal’s Gap using the stove you so rapidly sent me. The stove was everything promised. Light, efficient, and elegant. We never got below 3000 feet and the temperature was usually below zero when we cooked(Georgia had a cold snap). High winds(gusts to 40 mph) except for one night. Used a wind screen and reflector as per your instructions. Everything worked like a charm. Impressed the heck out of two guys from the British Isles(Scotland and Northern Ireland)at the Blue Mountain shelter.
When I saw the fuel bottle, I had to laugh, as it is the same bottle used for one of the pour-on cattle dewormers(I’m a retired agricultural agent). If I can only make one suggestion, it would be that you change the little round bolt that fits in the fill hole to one that has more of a wing nut/flattened oval shape(I’m sure there is a name for that style of nut, but I’m not a hardware person). It was sometimes difficult to hold the little screw with cold numbed fingers.
Thanks for a beautiful little stove.
