A Coleman stove, cot and propane would be useless gear in high country in low temps - especially zero or colder. A Coleman stove is clunky and heavy compared to ultralight gear commonly available. Same goes for the cot - dumb choice due to air circulation under the cot. In sub-zero weather, closed-cell foam with adequate bags is the norm. Finally, propane delivers poorly in colder temps. Not as bad a butane but white gas or native fuels would be better choices. IMO, these items are decoy materials. Some people are of the opinion that he’s dead and covered with snow up in the mountains. I doubt that. He’s nuts but he’s not stupid.

I agree...these items were nothing more than tinder. He’s playing them.
