Light Weight Hikers Blog proudly stocks the e2e Gram Weenie Pro Stoves

As part of trying to spread a lighter weight style of hiking here in Australia I have made an arrangement with a US based cottage manufacturer to sell his light weight stoves here. End2End Trail Supply’s owner George Carr has been perfecting light weight alcohol stoves for many years and am very pleased to be working with him, these stoves are great. The Gram Weenie Pro which can be see from the link here; weighs an amazing 19 grams. For those curious on how these work George has a youtube video; How to light GWP YouTube To keep things simple and cheap, I am selling the Gram Weenie Pro Stove, windshield, primer pan and Fuel bottle for $20.00 plus the cost of shipping anywhere in Australia.

Bibbulmun Track - Replacement Waugal Tree Markers


Today I went out on a field day with the Bibbulmun Track Foundation volunteers to a section of the track from Brookton Highway North towards Canning Campsite. The day was so that new volunteers as well as old could get to know each other, share some stories and issues about their section of the track.
One of the exercises was installing water bars so that any potential high volumes of rain runoff had a minimal impact on the track itself. We also covered topics such as how to prune vegetation correctly and where and when it is appropriate to install Waugals.
Below is a picture of the proposed new Waugal that will be positioned on a metal colour bond colour pole as opposed to the current ones which are nailed to the trees.

Enjoy!
