I have been trying to post the answer to the question about what was inside the needle valve preventing the propane from flowing....but, the blog won't let me post a picture at the moment! So, you'll have to keep checking back here for find out the answer. Any guesses....while you wait? Please post a comment....with your guess!
And while you are thinking....take a look at the new web album on the right titled, Dome Rock Campin'.
