I would use alcohol. Its easy to source on the AT. Esbit is not so easy to source. I will differ from Andy on the need for a compass, map, etc. The AWOL AT Guide is more than enough and much mo...

Ten Fidy
I just took a few of those on a cool trip last month. They are brewing in North Carolina now, so we get them in the southeast too. It was cool enough that they kept a nice drinking temperature. ...

Interest in a down vest
