Today I tried a theory of mine for using my Jet boil stove my REI cook set and a cooling rack my wife ordered for me and the final item parchment paper. While I did scorch the paper the bread came out fine and now I will work on a heat diffuser so nothing gets too hot before the bread is done. Added some chopped up dates and walnuts to the batter for flavor. The bread after the bottom was lightly scraped was delicious it would go well with any meal in the back country.

The Firebox Nano on it’s first test run making soup with less than 2 ounces of Alcohol and simmered for over thirty minutes with the Esbit stove. The soup was comprised of my own dehydrated vegetables and Beef Jerky and the stove combination worked as advertised and had a lot of fuel left when the soup was finished.
Yes I used the simmer ring after the soup came to a boil, the liquid was over 3 cups and the vegetables and water were direct from the refrigerator.
I personally will use the stove with the Alcohol burner only and not wood as I see it as a quick hot drink or soup type meal stove at this time.
I know it would burn wood just fine but I have a larger Emberlit that can also use the alcohol stove or smaller pieces of wood so now I have a wood burner and an alcohol burner for emergency use along with a Jet Boil that I plan to use for actual cooking.
But to have a fire box stove that will fit in my shirt pocket is very nice!
Ready To go

I am posting this picture in loving memory of our friend and pet Baileysue. Bailey fought illness for over two years before loosing the battle. She was a real fighter and many dogs would have given up a longtime ago but she loved life even if it was taking a nap in her bed as I worked on the computer. Dogs are so unselfish in their life and mostly only want to make “you” happy, so they forget about their aches and pains. Bailey you are already missed and will always be loved by us. Mike and Sharon “we are proud of our girl”!

I was on my way to Yakima on a business trip when I decided to eat my lunch in the Yakima canyon and watch some drift fishing (flies only catch and release only) if I was lucky. As this raft went by it made a perfect image to adjust when I got home. This is converted to CMYK with the black sharpened and the other colors slightly blurred to give a nice effect. I have enjoyed this image for a number of years but not all images are going to work for the above method of processing. Enjoy.

The maple tree in our back yard blooms each year and this time I was in the right place at the right time. A little Photo-shop work and re sized for the web gave up this very colorful image. This was shot with my old Nikon D-70 camera and my Tamron 18 -200 zoom lens.
Russ using his new Commercial video camera on one of out trips over to the elk feeding station. This was on the way home as we hoped to capture some color in the sky besides clouds or clear blue. Mission accomplished. The Video was used in his Inspirational video business called the Good Book Company

Well we are gong to shoot the Elma Prom again this year on the 7th of May. We will be using two back drops and camera setups so the kids have a choice of back grounds to choose from. We did this last year and it was a great success. Below is our Page image for the site we are building for any school that wants to use our services. The site address is Prompix.info. You can find us on face book at Prompix .
