Re: [John Muir Trail] Re: Mailing alcohol & stove choice
- Everclear is a great multipurpose item to bring on the trail. Stove fuel, antiseptic, hand sanitizer, koolaid additive and super lightweight body warmer (ultra traditionalist backpackers should stop reading here).The problem is where to buy it. It is illegal to sell in many states (the 190 proof stuff) including Califernia.

You could also go to the Liquor Store and buy some Everclear. Its not cheap but it works. You can mix the left over Everclear with KoolAid.You'll find fuels listed near the bottom of this page. http://zenstoves.net/Stoves.htm
