Denatured Alcohol on the JMT on 07/23/2009 07:23:14 MDT Print View

hey Guys,
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could purchase fuel on the JMT. Do they sell alcohol or canisters at Yosemite? I have also heard that the store at Tuolomne and the MTR sells it. Do they sell the large containers of it, or just what you need? Thanks

There are gear stores at Yosemite Village and Curry Village, and I'd guess TM would have supplies as well. The one in YV is like a mini-REI with tents and clothing and all kinds of other gear. There are shelves of canisters. Not sure if they sell denatured (I can take my own from home) but even if they didn't there are small communities on all roads leading in that would have gas stations that sell the yellow HEET.

MTR sold denatured by the ounce last year. TM in Yosemite also had denatured and canisters last season.

Muir Trail Ranch (MTR) sells Sunnyside Denatured for .....
$2 per ounce! Yep, $256/gallon.

At a max of $20 at True Value, and $50 to "mule it in" that is still pretty outrageous.

But they do have it.

Yikes, think I will just add a bottle to my resupply. $2/oz is nuts!

I was just in the TM's store. They are selling 16oz containers for $10. No partial sales. Ouch.

Mark,
Who is TM?

Did you mean Muir Trail (MT) Ranch?

If so, and if others have questions, they can get info from Pat at MTR via email. She was very responsive to my enquiries. As of 7/14 or so they were selling alcohol and white gas by the ounce.
