@Keebie Best deal on backpacking stoves sold by REI currently is the Soto Amicus cookset combo.

It is an excellent stove and the cookset while not the lightest is essentially free and quite nice

The Passage 2 is fine but a bit heavy for solo carry.  You might want to consider the QD SL2 if that will be your primary use.

This is a semi freestanding tent so does require a bit more skill to pitch.  You have to guy out the foot end.  I don't own one but it is similar to the Big Agnes Tiger Wall that I also recommend but is not currently on sale and probably more than you want to spend.
