The reason I am asking is because I may be joining a fellow coworker and his brother on a trip to do the Unitas Highline Trail. I know they both mostly lean to no cook with all kinds of snacks and what not. I am not sure what kind of water accessibility will be there also. In addition with the higher elevations I would assume longer boil times and more fuel usage.

It seems it is more preference driven than location or weight driven am I correct?
