On this particular trip, my wife had driven the three of us from Beaverdell to Mile Zero of the KVR at Midway and the idea was for my daughter and I to cycle from there back to Beaverdell which would take all day.

This was one of my first opportunities to try out my MSR Whisperlite stove (testing it at my firepit in the backyard at home doesn't count). I was still trying to get the hang of not letting too much fuel fill the starter cup - the first time at home a huge orange and yellow flame erupted from the base of the stove and a cloud of soot blackened not only the stove but the pot full of water on top. Thankfully there was nothing flamable within a 20 foot range of the inferno (except moi).
