re: My point is from looking in MY pack and knowing what I carry.

Yes and BEACHBUM makes the same point. Both you and beachbum have evolved
your personal meal system to a high degree to suit your personal taste.
Having done that, you conclude that you don't need to simmer. OK, I agree.
Therefore your advice is: Evolved your personal meal system to a high degree
to suit your personal taste THEN decide what stove/fuel to take. I agree. We
all agree. You, I and Beachbum started from the food perspective, not the
stove or fuel

hike of 50-100 miles is probably in the top 10% of people who hike. The
general solution IS the weekender. The long-distance hiker is a VERY special

Re: If course, if you are sitting around in camp all day, and not hiking,
you probably don't have the 
same kind of trail hunger.
