Primus OmniLite Ti

| Comments

There’s a new lightweight multifuel stove on the block, and it’s name is Primus OmniFuel Ti. Ti obviously stands for Titanium, the coveted UL material which is so dear to us ultralight backpackers. With two winter tours on the programme for me, one which will be solo and over a week, I thought it might be high-time to look into those stoves which are common among Polar Explorers.

The Week in Review

Censorship. I don't like it. I've been outspoken against those who moderate comments on their blogs. And I have been outspoken against SOPA & PIPA in the USA (hopefully off the table, thanks to the massive internet-wide blackout on the 18th of January) and I am completely against ACTA. You should too if you're a savvy web citizen, so head over to Stop ACTA, watch the video below, and sign this Petition to keep the internet free.
