I do like the "no stove" approach, particularly for summer. But I like my morning coffee too!

Alcohol is available everyewhere. There is always a hardware store someplace.
Esbit is a problem. Somebody at the DEA looked at the ingredients list of the tabs
and discovered that one of the ingredients can be used to make meth. Therefore you
are limited in the amount that you can buy.
I have known people who have never carried a stove. It can be done. Then,when I
was an assistant scout master ruining the minds of the youth of America I had a scout
who opened a package of Ramen Noodles, atethem dry and them drank all of the
water in his water bottle. He survived (unfortunately).
