It looks like the original MSR article is gone. Any chance anyone saved it? I'm trying to figure out how much fuel i'll need for a trip in June.

Thanks!

Check the MSR website they still have articles up.

I can try to give you a best guess. How many days are you going for? How many people? And which meals do you boil for?

Thanks I'll check their site.

3 people, approximately 10-12 meals each that we'll boil for. I've got a JetBoil I borrowed(haven't used before) and we'll probably have at least one more similar stove, MSR brand I don't know the exact model.

10-12 meals per person? Wow that's a lot of boiling!! I would say 2 of the 8oz canisters (1 for each stove), should do it. The jetboil is quick and the MSR whatever it is will be too. Here is a good article for you: https://thesummitregister.com/stoves-10 ... d-i-carry/

We'll be hiking Sunday through the following Saturday. 10-12 was on the high end. 6 dinners, and 4-6 breakfasts. Some of the meals we have will be shared/supplemented with other items, Getting weights and everything finalized in the next week or two so I wanted to get an estimate on fuel.
