Hey Mags,

Sorry to catch you on such a technicality, but did you use the Tin Can Stove 
Man stove (Pepsi can variety) or the Photon stove (closed system)?  Or both?  
Two different animals you know.  

How well did they perform at attitude, fuel usage for a meal at 11,000 feet 
and during your trip?

I'm seriously thinking of using one of these on the CDT next year, but feel I 
may end up carrying more fuel than I normally would with my whisperlite 
internationle.  I typically boil just over 3 cups of water for dinner, 1 for 
hot chocolate, tea or coffee and two for the meal itself.

How much water did you boil?  Curious mind wants to know.......
