Re: [CDT-L] List discussion

   My experience with the Zip Stove on my Appalachian Trail thru-hike was less
than positive.  In short ... it was simply too labor intensive. Generally by
the time I had gathered and ignited enough dry material to cook a meal, the
white-gas stove owners in whatever shelter I was in were already eating!  The
fan motor finally quit after a week, so I took that opportunity to "go gas".
My Whisperlite Internationale functioned flawlessly for the rest of the hike,
as well as in the four years since. 
   I did however meet two other thru hikers towards the end of the hike that
had used the Zip for the entire six months and still loved it!    Different
strokes ...
