I'm planning a thru hike on the A.T. would this be a good stove to buy
This could be a decent stove, but it really depends on how you're going to be cooking (freeze dried and just boiling water versus actually cooking) and how many people you'll be hiking with. Also, for a thru hike of a longer duration and distance, you might want to actually consider a white gas stove. You'd have less wasted weight in canisters and what not, it would probably be less expensive. Check out this website: http://www.howardjohnson.name/Backpacking/Stove/Stoves.htm
