For summer vacations, I take a Trail Designs Caldera Cone and 12-10 stove or use a Starlyte stove with the CC. If fire conditions in CA are high, maybe the MSR Microrocket or as many know, maybe a classic MSR G or GK with yellow pump. Winter trips could be anything. A old Optimus 111 or if conditions warrant, a loud MSR GK or MF, I usually take two stoves in the winter to get some use out of my collection. I have some Primus 41 stoves and Radius 43's which work very well simmering with a roarer burner. Did someone mention stoves? smile
