Looks like you guys are getting plenty of moisture back there......that's a good thing.  :thumbsup:    Days like that make a good fresh cup of coffee taste even better! :coffee:

it is indeed moist. makes a fire a PITA, but some dry twigs and a fire straw really get things going.

this was my first time using this folding stove, and i'm digging it.

oh, and the coffee was TASTY

Nice little get away.  a hot cup in the outdoors smelling a piney forest is a win anytime.

Great photos, thanks!  I have two of those folding stoves but haven't used one yet.  All of the local places to walk do not allow open fires so I am forced to drive 60 miles to a national forest for my outdoor coffee!

Great pics.  Looks like a fun area.  Is that an Esbit stove?
