Re: Coffee On The Isle

I'll use Medaglia D'Oro or Cafe Bustelo instant coffee. Via's are too costly for me. Cafe Bustelo now comes in the small tubes similar to Via.

Re: Why you should use liquid fuel

I have an msr liquid fuel stove, but haven't used it in 10+ years and then only used it in the winter. I usually use my pocket rocket or a homemade alcohol stove.

Re: Therm-a-Rest Mattresses

I like Don Newcombs idea. Also, you could just not stay in the shelters and go back to the tent on the ground.

Re: experience with esbit stoves?

I've used esbit on a homemade 'stove' & windscreen. It worked great. Sometimes you can use a tablet for 2 cycles. But they smell extremely bad and they leave a sticky mess on your pot.

I doubt you can bring them on a plane, maybe if you checked your bag. That should be easy enough to find out.
