Only at a place like the Backpacking Light office would you find a scene like this:

Yes, very discriminating taste.

Most places serve the heet in red bottles.

Nice Bunn. They sell Yellow HEET at Bed, Bath, and Beyond?

The sugar container was too heavy. They repackaged the sugar into the lighter HEET bottle.

How cold does it get there ?
Is the heet to keep the coffee machine from freezing up over night ?

Actually, BPL staff are SO hardcore, they just drink the stuff to give them an extra morning "kick."

I've given this some thought. That scene could be improved by shortening the power cord until it was just long enough to reach the receptacle. Also, the glass can be substituted with thin titanium, and leave off the handle.

So that's the reason the machine is unplugged.

I'm concerned about what might be in that mason jar--Jujubes, C-4 pellets, ultralight vitamins, tofu chunks, what?

Why isn't there a fork sticking out of the light socket? With that, the picture would make perfect sense....
