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.

Schrade XT2B Drop Point Survial Knife


In preparation for my upcoming hike/survival trail I purchased a Schrade XT2B fixed blade knife today, looks really nice. The appealing things to me were the rubber handle (feels nice) and the heavy blade.

I will feed back some more info on how it performs once I have the opportunity to give it a workout.
