New upside-down fuel-can jet boil
I am planning another long walk, but this time it'll be above the shrub and bush line, and I need warm food/drinks - at least i think I do -- I guess I could go without, but would rather not. ...

At least with a fire, like hunting or farming for your food, you see your impact
