      Hi Cora,

      Thanks for taking the time to edit my report.

      A couple of explanations...

      Field Conditions

      @@@I was establishing "pack time"; i.e. time spent bouncing around in
      my pack.

      > > Total estimated trail

      @@@Again, building my case about durability...

      @@@You're right. I got a little careless there; thanks.

      @@@Actually, yes! I used it to heat up some water for hot cider.
      It's only a drink, but my "cooking" out backpacking doesn't extend
      much further than that. I'll simply state what I've done and let the
      reader decide. Thanks again Cora.
