Lightweight? Hmmm - maybe. For a 6 day stretch that's 24 oz of fuel +
stove weight + fuel container weight. Total about maybe 32 oz.
For an 8 day stretch last year we used 18 oz of fuel + stove weight (10
oz) + fuel container weight. Total 32 oz. That was for two of us.
I was thinking about using an alcohol stove. Maybe I'll think again.
