I have a stove with slightly smaller stove support, Soto Windmaster

A time or two pot has tipped over

Maybe a bigger pot support is a good idea :)

Just found this.I took a quick look at the list and found a few defects.

No sunscreen on list. No sunhat either.

Carries tobacco, but far too little food.

Rain gear listed is only suitable on well-cleared trails. Not suitable for above timberline.

Inadequate warmth for below the waist in some conditions even during the summer since no long Johns, no wind or rain pants, only short light socks, no gaiters.

This was listed as a 3 season checklist. Inadequately warm footgear for the snow to be expected in June and October, and which I have experienced in every month of the year in Oregon.

A too-ultralight pack, IMHO.
