Awesome, glad you enjoy them. My hope is that they can be helpful for everyone - so much I feel like everyone talks about how they "bought this" or "did that" to their truck, and then we never hear about it again - good or bad. The important part of course is how that thing works over time.I dig the “what did/didn’t work” review posts you’ve been doing. I don’t get out in the woods as much as you do, but I’ve been trying to keep track of things that need to be improved when I do. Yours might save me some time, money, and frustration.
I have this stove / grill combo. It does work pretty good. Enjoyed the write ups and pictures. Thank you!However, I think I have a solution. I'm going to get the Coleman Camp Grill/Stove, a combo unit that has a burner for a pan and a burner for a grill. I didn't get it the first time because I thought it was a bit kitschy, and that the burner for the pan would be too small. But now, I think it might be just right.
I've liked it, generally. The stove/grill split is great. My only two complaints about it are:"However, I think I have a solution.

I have wondered if that grill worked well.
Yes, thanks. Actually, we have a hose for a 20lb tank, but not for the small 1lb-ers, and as time has gone on, I've been looking for ways to reduce the gear on a trip (for weight reasons). But, you got me thinking - I wonder if I could find - or make - a neck that had the "bend" for the bottle faced the opposite direction. If I could, the bottle would once again be next to the stove.If you are not aware you can buy a propane hose on Amazon that will make your bottle remote.

I've had good luck putting a large diameter section of heat shrink over the coils and shrinking it down. It won't shrink down enough to seal water out, but it will help keep things from getting stuck in the coils.The Ham Radio Antenna (long-term)
TL;DR - I'd like to find a ham radio antenna that is more flexible/floppy than the one I've currently got, and that doesn't have a small section of wound metal in the middle, since that gets stuck on trees and pulls at the roof mount.
I've been running a Diamond NR770HBNMO mobile antenna since I got my ham radio, and from a Tx/Rx perspective, it's awesome. However, I'm always worried that when I hit low-hanging branches, it's trying to rip itself out of my roof. Evidence of this is often clear, as it was on my last trip to the Pryor mountains.
I'd like to find a whip antenna that I can replace the Diamond with so that - hopefully - when I hit a branch, it just flexes and scoots by, rather than catching itself on the foliage.
