    I love my MSR pocket rocket, but in the winter I went with white gas. I used the Optimus 8R, don't think they make it anymore, but it was safe and lights out reliable.

    I have always enjoyed that bread. My father loved it and got me to like it as well. Been awhile since I had any, it just made the shopping list. Microwave with butter.
