Not for Jack Daniels for my stove.
The fancy MSR bottles seem a bit heavy when I looked at one today. I have a Caldera Cone alcohol stove for my hike and wondered if a plain old 20 oz water bottle would do for carrying denatured alcohol. The walls seem a bit thin but it will be in my front pack. I have not used alcohol stoves on previous hikes.
Some of my gear has been stolen (from my garage) so I had to buy new poles today. My whistle and compass are also gone, I suspect neither are needed on the AT so I have not replaced them, what do you think- replace or go without? I do have a SPOT for a true emergencies.
I leave for Georgia Tuesday morning.
