    I have been progressively trying to consolidate my setup now that I am mostly solo camping. My setup is almost down to one box for everything so it's easy to just grab and go after filling up the cooler. To further decrease the load I am looking to get a smaller stove setup. The Coleman fold and go in this link is my front runner right now but still searching.

    Also picked up a Big Agnes Frying Pan SL2 tent for cheap during an REI 30% sale. Couldn't pass up that deal and now I have a compact tent for the motorcycle also.

    When we are running trails I usually just take a Jetboil and eat hydrated meals, oatmeal, and coffee.

    When we are camping I use a Coleman propane stone similar to what you are showing.

    My son an I are headed to Capitsl Reef and the surrounding area this Friday morning. We will camp out if the 4runner, pack light, and hit as many 4x4 trails and hikes as we can for a couple of days.

    Wally, I am looking to do similar, move from RV to out of the Runner. Simplify. I have read that those new butane powered stoves are the ish. I do not have a link though.

    I have read up on those also. They are nice and there are some that can handle butane and propane. The problem with me is I am already so setup for propane, I have bottles of it, as in many bottles.:facepalm: But they are worth a look and the butane canisters are fairly compact. Let us know if you pull the trigger on one and post a review if you feel like it. An yes simplify is the goal. :thumbsup:
