      click "Hike Planning"

      then click "Mailing Fuel"

      then scroll down to Alcohol

      simplified quote from Gottawalk

      What this means to us:

      Primary Receptacle
      We can ship alcohol in a metal primary receptacle not to exceed 1
      quart. A nonmetal primary receptacle must not exceed 1 pint. The
      primary receptacle must have a screw cap (with a minimum of
      one-and-one-half turns), soldering clips, or other means of secure
      closure (friction tops are not acceptable). Only one primary
      receptacle is permitted per mail piece.

      Cushioning Material and Secondary Packaging
      Enough cushioning material must surround the primary receptacle to
      prevent breakage and absorb any potential leakage. The cushioning and
      primary receptacle must be packed in a securely sealed secondary

      Outer Packaging
      A strong outer packaging that is capable of firmly and securely
      holding the primary receptacle, cushioning material, and secondary
      packaging is required.

      Each mailpiece must be clearly marked on the address side with
      "Surface Mail Only", "Consumer Commodity ORM-D", and the flashpoint of
      the flammable liquid (which is 13C/55F for denatured alcohol)
