I m in sync with Radio.
I tend to cook like a backpacker, one pot meals, nothing fancy.
Maybe that's why DW doesn't ask me to cook much?

PS- those external frame packs in ur pic brings back some good memories.
Then I discovered internal frame packs and the world changed!

If ur not a backpacker, that may not make sense, the 2 types feel completely different when u carry them.

When backpacking, you carry the pots, pans, dishes, stove, bedroom, laundry and roof

all on your back.

Of course there's no traffic and not much trouble backing into your site.

In the army we didn't camp, it was bivouacking. Didn't carry any utensils other than a mess kit and a shovel. On two occasions when on a bivouac I was "forced" to move from a tent to a barracks the afternoon before a downpour. Damn, I hated that, when those guys came in they were like drowned rats, soaked to the skin and covered with mud. The lightning and thunder did keep me from a sound sleep though. We "camped" at Camp McCoy, WI one time and I told the guy that had the other tent half, let's not pitch our tent with all the rest of these troops which is what we did. The next morning the 1st shirt said where were you last night, we needed you for guard duty, again, Damn, sorry I missed it.
