Camp Cooking

Mini campfire – I left a full fuel bottle with Ginger, and while I had enough alcohol for dinner and breakfast, I decided to save fuel and get out my Nano Firebox.

Breakfast – Biscuits and gravy and a cup of coffee.

Breakfast comforts – A cup of tea and Mountain House South West Breakfast Skillet, followed by a cup of coffee, and all enjoyed from the comfort of my camp chair. I did a lot of staring into space, admiring the view, as the trees swayed in the dappled sunlight while the breeze blew. I doubt this spot has seen a human visitor in many years.

Camp Table. The stove is on the ground because it is very windy, and the table is sheltering it. +1

I get my day’s breakfast and trail food out first thing so I don’t forget to unpack it before I break camp and put everything in my backpack.

Camp life (cont.) – Heating some water on my Fancee Feest cat-can alcohol stove. I was being lazy, and couldn’t be bothered to light the woodstove just to heat up some hot dogs and boil water for a cup of tea. Piney Creek Wilderness – Day Two. 2 pictures

Cooking a late lunch. Bell Mountain – Day One. Because of the rain, I decided not to make lunch on the trail and had a combined lunch and dinner after I’d set up camp.
