I also liked the reflective shots, makes nice for such a pristine lake. Glad you got to check it out on a nice day.

As well, I'm sad to hear of the increased logging activity in the area.

I'm not arguing not to use MH, go ahead and use it if it suits you. The reasons I prefer DA are that it is safer to use and handle, it has a hotter burn, and it can still be used to clean/disinfect. ...

Haha, nice try. I know you can use Methyl Hydrate in a pop can stove, but it is not the same thing. Do your research.

Well, for that I would recommend Flor de Caña Rum. Would taste a lot better and wouldn't cause blindness like Methynol would... Well depending on how many Cuba Libres one drinks. :-P
