Lots of praise for the Jetboil here. I have yet to fire up the camp stove, instead limiting my "cooking" to boiled water poured into dehydrated camping food packs. Over the past five - five? - days, the compact water boiler has turned out 6-8 cups of boiling water every day, still on its first gas cartridge!
The dehydrated food? Faint praise; they're better than any military field rations I ever ate. Quick, satisfying, easy cleanup. I'm okay with that.
The walk over the crest and downhill is an inspiring view of Vermont's forested hills - better on clear mornings, of course! Mount Ascutney dominates the northern horizon, while a number of rolling ridges border the western edge of the valley.
