I'm thinking if everyone vows not to bring a rain shell, and if in fact nobody brings a rain shell to the GGG, our collective odds of getting some rain in this state might actually improve. This would be directly proportional to the increased individual odd that each of will get rain sheerly because of murphy's law with respect to forgotten rain gear. Anyway, worth a shot.
On a more serious note, are we definitive on alcohol stoves? I'm thinking a canister stove will be best for me, but wanted to know if, for example, the burn-off is on the even list or off. I read most of these 15 pages but not all so ... sorry if I missed it.
