I don’t know about you but my wife and I are always looking for quick getaways that’s close to home. Being able to get out of the city and up in the mountains is always a plus for us. And most of the time to make this happen it means camping, which isn’t always a bad thing. But sometimes we are looking for more than camping but less than hotel room service. I found that the Antelope Yurt at the Blue Sky Ranch was a perfect option.
For me, having a reliable way to boil water while out in the backcountry is important. This usually means having something to boil the water in, like a pot, pan or mug and something to boil the water on, like a fire or stove. I prefer using a stove over fire when boiling water as it is quick and easy. There are many stoves on the market but few, if any, as small and light as the Olicamp ION Micro stove.
