Just a few random things to share.
Sometimes I get interested in something and find it took a
little effort to understand what I needed / wanted to know.
If I was interested in finding something or exploring the
thought, chances are I am not alone. If it took me
effort to get it figured out, it would most likely require
effort for someone else. Sometimes I write a paper on
these so I can share it with people. Sometimes the
papers are written because I know I will forget if I don't
write it down. Some of these papers are listed here.
They are not related, just a few of the papers I think
people might find useful.

weight, compact ad never failed. However when the Jet Boil
Stove came on the scene I ended up putting the BluuBull Stove on
the shelf. :( These archived pages show what it is,
how to use it and a few other details. The pages also
describe in great detail how to make your own if you so choose.
If you are looking to purchase a water filter / purifier for
backpacking or other outdoor activities, you might find this an
interesting read. This paper may help you understand a bit
more about the water filter process and what is being filtered
out of the water. There are more details here than on the
average manufacture's web sites. Take a look gain some
insight about virus' bacteria, heavy metal, pesticides ect in
