    Now that is good customers relations good for you. I took your advice and purchased a Jetboil today the kit that comes with a frying pan,utensils and the stabilizers etc. I also ordered in a package of beef stew from mountain house to try and a cannister of fuel. After the 20% discount and my dividend I only had to pay 14.00. Way cool.

    Have a blast. If you will not be wearing crampons up top, step carefully. There were literally rivers of ice just below/around the hut and in-between the rocks on the way up the climb using Osgood. If there is any of this new snow left, either of these may be hidden.

    It is a good idea to play with the ignition and gas from the comfort of home before trying it in the middle of nowhere ;-) I know it took me a bit to get good at adjusting the flow and getting a light.

    I thought of another small drawback. I was unable to operate it with thick gloves on, so had to open the valve with just thin liners. I haven't had to do this in extreme weather so it hasn't been a huge issue for me, but it might for some of the hard core types (it is a bear to turn on when really cold - either that or I am way too aggressive when I turn it off).

    Have fun!! (my fav is Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce)
