[pct-l] winter purchase

hey '98ers, last summer one of the drinks I enjoyed most was powdered apple
cider. I never found it in bulk, for it was always in those little packets of
1 serving each. Alpine was the maker, though I've seen it from other companies
for more money. Anyway, last spring, before I started the trail, my roommate
and I went to costco and to our horror they had stopped carrying it and said
that it was considered a winter item. Costco got a letter of complaint, and
naturally did nothing about it.
Anyway, the apple flavoring goes a long way for improving the taste of some of
the water out there, and is a refreshing change from the gatorade-type mixes.
Less salt, same sugar and plenty of Vitamin C. And as in the winter, or the
high sierras, it's wonderful HOT!
Just a tip!
Happy New Year

oh, if you load up on it, in the towns, pour all the contents of the separate
packets into one small ziploc. Gargage is a nusiance out there, too. On a
similar note, Gatorade sometimes comes in a small orange container with a
screw-on lid. Bob Betz used it as his cereal bowl and drink mixer, since he
was drinking out of a little platypus bottle thingy bag. It's very light and
can be used to rehydrate things for dinner, though it's not totally leak
proof. hope this helps.
