as far as stoves go....
My son found some website that tells you how to make an alchohol stove from aluminum cans. It's awesome! I have a couple MSR stoves that I use for backing way in, but I'm going to bring these instead. The one he built last week uses Everclear. So we can use it as a disinfectant, stove fuel, or I think (if you mixed it with something), it could serve as a celebratory drink! They take cold water from the refrigerator to a rolling boil in about 4 minutes, on two Tablespoons of fuel. So far we've only cooked top ramen on it, but it does it faster than either of my MSR's do.
That's what we eat on our backpack hunts. Ramen noodles, and grouse or rabbits. I mix the spices that I need all together in one small shaker, and that's it.
Work to live, don't live to work.
