My grandpa on my moms side (he died before I was born) was banned by the Alachua county sheriff in Florida from purchasing alcohol because of his alcoholic, drunken antics.  Every store in the county was told not to sell to him and none of them did.

His solution was to buy Sterno, heat it up, strain off the alcohol and drink that.

Primos Micron lantern puts out a butload of heat that will warm a pack tent up in the morning and right before bed (don't leave it burning w/o ventilation...carbon monoxide threat). Jetboil for boiling water quickly for freeze dried meals and morning java. A couple of fuel canisters go a long way if you're careful.

Hah!  :chuckle: It IS pretty much pure ethanol with a gelling agent from what I've read. Prolly even safer nowadays for Grandpappy to drink because it's gone "Green!"

We had a night watchman who was banned from the local liquor store in the small NH town we lived in. Unknown to us, he was drinking sterno and Aqua Velva, filtered through white bread. It was sad. He was an heir to a massive Pittsburgh fortune and had been cut-off because he was unable to address his drinking problem. Not sure what ever happened to him when we let him go.

Kifaru Smith stove.  Back before I went floorless I would just crank up my cook stove  (whichever one I was using at the time) to take the chill out of those terrible little things we call lightweight backpacking tents.

That's the way ole Keith Whitley passed away, my favorite country singer. Wife would catch him in the bathroom drinking mouthwash and any other solvent he could get his hands on when no alcohol was around. 34 years old and on top of the world famous at the time...

firepaste for day,  seek outside 4 lb stove for night.   Lil heavy but its nice loading it up and drying gear for 2.5 to 3 hours before reloading it - with four to five 4" logs in it.

Pianoman,

Whereabouts in the granite state are you from?  I grew up in Auburn (outside of Manchester).
