Couple years ago while testing one of my liquid fuel stoves at home before my trip, tank would not hold pressure. Eventually decided it needed a new filler cap gasket, and this is not the 70s any more, no local stores stock small parts like that. So, a different stove went on that trip.

A couple decades ago I was buying my first solo tent, I asked an REI employee if I could set it up on the floor in the store to see how big it was inside. Store was not very busy, he said sure and helped me. We got it set up and found several dead tree leaves inside the tent. He immediately said that I would get 20 percent off.
