Trailspace has campsite campers, backpacking campers, Truck and RV campers, long trail hikers that camp off the trails and at designated areas and mountaineering individuals that camp at different elevations.
One thing we all have in common is that we have a mess kit and that we bring some sort of food.
What I want to know is what is your mess kit and what sort of food do you eat /prepare. and what is your fuel source.
I have met people that bring a kettle and swear by it
Some are bringing a pot/pan combo
There are those that have a multi pot and pan setup
People that go in groups i have seen with all of the above
Also what I want Reponses to is what kind of food are you bringing.
Reason why this is not only relevant but important
If we are making a review of a camping stove or mess kit or cooking pot or pan or kettle or what have you, what type of food you are cooking is very relevant
If you are bringing a bag of Knorr pasta for example and in your review you said that the size of the pot is perfect for making pasta it can be misleading. Knorr requires an exact amount of water to be added. A box of Roni would be twice the water used and Ronzoni pasta would require 4 - 5 times the water .
If the review was of a stove then the cooking time for all above would be different times and more fuel consumption.
I can only speak for myself on what i use and bring and cook but to better understand the larger community of wilderness adventurers i was hoping for some input from you all
I have also noticed that those of us that do a lot of cooking at home tend to be more elaborate when cooking in the outdoors.
So what kind of stove do you use and what fuel source does it require. For mess kits- information like weight, dimensions ,capacity and material and brand name . And if you don't mind what is your mess kit either lacking or what you would change about it if you could. Last but not least, what sort of food do you bring? Knorr, MT House, regular pasta. Is your protein fresh, dehydrated, freeze dried? is it a one pot dish or multiple items cooking separately
