On the subject of pots n pans.
Does anyone here have a complete official "Boy Scout" mess kit they would like to get rid of?

That's been debunked, I thought.

I'm sure I'd be dead by now if that were true. My folks had aluminum pots and pans. Besides, hard anodized is quite a bit different than the regular old dent-able soft aluminum pots.

That's what I meant...

I think things that are truly bad for us are going to be the ones we least suspect. Like all the PTFE loaded items - Goretex, Teflon lined pans, etc.

Thanks again everyone for your input. I think I'll go weigh my old alumunium pots and see what they weigh. I don't think they are that much heavier than titanium so it may not justify the cost of buying expensive titanium pots. It's been interesting hearing everyones' opinion. Happy trails!
