Hah. Interesting. I joined REI when I started backpacking in 1973. Back then membership was $1.

I joined in about 1969. If I remember correctly you used to get a dividend based on your purchases? We bought two down bags which are still very functional 40+ years ago from REI. We keep them in the vehicle all winter long here in the upper Midwest. REI always had pretty darn good products. I always marveled at their ice axe selection. And other mountain climbing stuff.

Thank you all for the useful info.
Has anyone used this stove on a plastic table? Will the Ranger II melt a plastic table?
Thanks-
Jim

We have used ours a few times on wooden and plastic picnic tables. So far, no problems -- and, finally, we're able to simmer stuff, which was a challenge with our old Coleman propane stove.

However, your plastic table might not be the same as our plastic table, and so this should not be construed as a guarantee, warranty, promise or other reassurance. Because lawyers.

FWIIW we use our camp chef 2 on a folding plastic table... no problems YET

didn't think to check, tho.

A wood cutting board under it would be not a bad idea.

Love the stove BTW.

After using our Ranger II for a few weeks now, I must say I am very impressed. The burners put out a great deal of heat, yet simmer wonderfully, especially with the inner flame ring. I have had it for a year now, but just got around to using it with the LP QC. Beats the crap outta any of the many Coleman's and other similar stoves I have used.

We used this stove on a lifetime folding table(plastic) a lot. It never occurred to me the type of the table matters for a self contained stove unit.
