Re: [John Muir Trail] wood stoves on the JMT
- I have hiked for miles along the trail were there is nothing but snow, weeds, grass or rocks. I would rather pack a can of gas and have to worry about disposing of the can, than to have to try to get enough heat out of the wet grass so I wouldn't have to crunch down my freeze dried stuff. There are also signs along much of the trail saying no fires above 10,000 feet.
Life is what you make it.
Planning ahead is half the fun.

well after reading all the posts. I'm sorry to say
a lot of you didn't read mine ..
no I don't advocate bonfires .. no the stove I was asking
about is a twig stove ..
http://www.nimblewi llnomad.com/ stove.htm
and if I'm correct it was used by a thru hiker on the
PCT.. (if I remember correctly).
and a good downfall could provide enough fuel for this type
of stove for a ton of hikers.
I also would use it to supplement my regular fuel, be it
can or bottle. (haven't decided yet:-)
so was just asking...
