Mountain Dave, save your money from buying a Kelty Dart Tent. TrailMix had a
Dart2 and always awakens a wet rat. ( He got rid of it and bought a Walrus
Solo tent ) They do not have enough venting . Carry a small amount of alcohol
to start your Esbit tablets in the wind. Trailmix ( Tony D. used a prototype
esbit stove and had trouble lighting tabs in wind. ) I used an alcohol stove
and loaned him a teaspoon for firestarter. With a little alcohol dripped on,
they do work surprisingly well. ( I still would prefer a homemade alcohol
burner for most the trip, then switch to a hotter stove in the Sierra's and
North Cascades ) Tablet Stoves weigh maybe an ounce compared to a 3 ounce
