When hiking long distance solo or with my BIL just some 151 to mix with some powdered drink mix is luxury most times. When doing an easy solo I will bring a book and some better booze. Those are enjoyable afternoons.
I am going on a hike this weekend that is about half my normal distance, and with a group so I expect the pace to be easy too. We are going to a hot spring so I am taking frozen Margaritas in an insulated cover for some fire and ice action.
Oh yeah, I am taking one of those light (not UL, not Heavy) 2P double-wall tents that we are testing too...
