FUEL NEEDS Fill your stove at home (and always light it to make sure it's in good working order) and carry · extra fuel. Estimate gener­ ously . . it's better to bring home unneeded fuel than to run out. On a trip where one stove serves two or three hikers and you're boiling water to purify it, plan on enough fuel for 2 hours' burning time per day. Here a large-capacity stove like the Cole­ man Peak 1 or the MSR has the edge over one that burns 40 minutes on a tank. Cooking is smoother (when a stove is empty, it must cool before being refilled), and you won't need to pack a fuel flask for a very short trip.

Food can be soaked in a pan, or often right in the bag it traveled in. AM OUNT OF MONEY TO SPEND Costs for hiking foods can vary widely. O n the high end of the scale is the use of all prepackaged (mainly freeze-dried) foods. The low end of the money scale calls for putting together all your own beverages, cereals, main dishes, snacks and so on. More time is needed for the do-it-yourself route, of course. HOW MUCH VARIETY IS NEE D E D People differ greatly in how much sameness they can tolerate or enjoy in wilderness meals.

Cap, routinely point it away from you when you set up to cook. It's a blowtorch when it goes! Wind will dramatically reduce any stove's efficiency, stretch cooking times and increase fuel consumption. So shield the stove in some way from all but the lightest of breezes. Build a low stone wall (dismantle later) or arrange bodies or packs strate- gically. If your camp is in the open, you might retreat to a nearby grove of trees to cook. A wind fence can be rigged by stringing a small tarp or poncho between trees.
