Yep, Forecast Still Not Looking Great...

If it's to be believed we might get only slightly wet on Saturday morning before it all turns nasty later in the day and on Sunday. Why, for the love of sanity, did I agree to run the OMM? A mountain marathon practically in the middle of winter? What was I thinking? I guess it'll form one of those memories you look back on in future and remember fondly... maybe not.

The big decision, gas or solid fuel? Solid is going to take up less space for sure and maybe weigh a bit less but it burns cooler. Will that matter? I'd be more confident of definitely having enough fuel for the weekend. But the last two mm's have been with gas - ssh, no, stop it. To asist the solid fuel burn i'm designing a near zero weight wind shield burn funnel.... Oh the decisions...
