I have been on a few backpacking trips but always with friends where I use there gear like stoves tents and things like that. Now I am starting to Purchase my own gear and the last major thing I have to purchase is a stove. I'm trying to decide between white gas and canister. I usually don’t have a problem figuring out how things work and how to fix them I would prefer something that is not over complicated but it doesn’t have to be quite so simple as turn a valve and light a match I also like real food not the dehydrated stuff I actually cook when I get to camp there usually fairly simple things like macaroni and cheese or beans and rice but it takes time to cook. And the last thing is I live at a high altitude 6000 feet and I usually take trips at a higher one 7 or 8 thousand. And I don’t know how that effects the stoves can anyone give me advice or insight on which stove type will probably work better for me
