Could someone positively confirm this ? I've not traveled with hiking gear, so help is appreciated. Also, any problems purchasing one of these items in Arizona ? We're on our way to the Grand Canyon soon ! thanks, BRENT NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here

That's true. I've found Heet at many places in AZ, but not everywhere. Flagstaff is your best bet. NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
