Just a FYI

There was an X-class flare yesterday aimed at the Earth.

CME should hit the magnetosphere tomorrow.

Predicted aurora as far south as southern Oregon, which could mean that with sufficient altitude (and darkness) in California and looking north, you could see it. Decent wide/fast lens and long exposure (or stacked multiple shorter exposures) will bring make it pop.

More here.

Camp Fire / Camp Stove Pressure Cooker ~ FYI ~ Home Stove as well

A bit too heavy for backpacking (8 lbs.) BUT, for car camping ... road trips :shrug:
I ordered the "M", 9 qt / 8.5 liter. 4 to 6 person... just because. Smaller / larger models available

Wow, Afghani pressure cookers? Who knew? But I do like my Jetboil for car camping plus we keep one in the big fire truck with some cup o' noodles etc. and coffee for those overnight fires.
