    Come celebrate 23 years of service to our great country...mrt10x is retiring from the Marines and leaving the east coast for Colorado. Let's make him miss us!

    July 19-21
    Green Falls Campground (better than Mt Misery because there's a pond and it's gonna be haaaawt)
    Pachaug State Forest
    Voluntown, CT

    I'll make burgers Saturday night. I make good burgers. I'll even try my best to accommodate our vegetarian and vegan friends.

    This is a disorganized event. Bring your own crap. We'll share sites. No organized rides. There's the enduro loop, some nice road riding, and easy dirt roads. Just find a group and go.

    All bikes welcome, even scootahs (which I might be on since the baby DR is begging for a thorough go-through).

    cheesebot & I will come down Friday evening, hopefully by 4:30-5pm. Anyone local who can grab a spot or two earlier, let me know and/or post up the spots.

    Note: there is an alcohol ban in the campground during the summer. Plan accordingly.

    ALL ARE WELCOME, even if you don't know the guest of honor! If you've never been to a CNR, come on down. It's definitely a chill gathering, and we're always looking for new entertainment.

    Sounds like akarob is going to do it proper (riding in on his bike) so if someone wants to volunteer to do a sun/rain shelter/tarp, that'd be great.

    Love riding up in that area but unfortunately those dates conflict on the schedule.

    Would love to attend the send off of a fellow Marine! Especially when someone dedicates 28yrs to the beloved Corp! Thank you for your service to our Country!

    Congratulation on your Retirement! Semper Fidelis Brother! My you have safe travels thru the beginning of your new life!

    I'm in. Excited because it's so soon too.

    I just finished up my new stove, Al's design. Materials: Red Bull can and aluminum tape.


    It's about 2" diameter, uses about a tablespoon of alcohol.

    That's awesome!

    I just bought myself an esbit yesterday in prep/backup (Im not sure how much I trust isobutane) for when I go on my national park tour in a couple of months.

    I tried to boil water with one tablet, but it only got to about 185° before I ran out of fuel. I think Im going to (try) make myself a radiator for the bottom of my mug/pot. This was with 2cups of water, ambient temperature (about 65F), no wind shield around the stove. Tablet burned approx 9.5 mins, lost serious intensity after about 8.5

    Nice Rob. I'm about to start working on a winter camping wood stove for a tent I don't actually own yet.. I'm going to to put together my own final design but I'm using a bunch of different ideas from other people that have made similar stoves from army surplus ammo cans, plus a few aideas of my own... Similar to stoves like these...

    [​IMG]

    probably closer to this design..

    PS.. I'll be there!
