Just what people hiking at high altitude need to keep their bodies alert and healthy, add a little freeze-dried powder to the water for instant rum or vodka. Gives new meaning to drinking the Kool Aid. I just had a vision of breakthrough like the ice sheet that just broke away and wiped everyone off the face of Everest a couple of days ago.

Yeah, I can definitely see some problems. We have all know bad things happen when people party to much at altitude. The nice thing is being able to have a cocktail with dinner.

The response is kind of interesting. Many of us take a flask or two of some thing, so to be able to lose 12 oz or more while backpacking actually seemed like a big break through.

I guess nothing is off limits when it comes to cutting weight eh? :puke:
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

Well considering my friend Derek brought 6 liters of Vodka with him last summer for a 14 day loop he could certainly shed some major pounds with it.

If it tastes as "good" as wine powder, I'll pass...

(they sell chablis and burgundy on Packit Gourmet - for cooking with.)

There is no problem that alcohol can't make worse.
