I have been in AZ coming up on a year now. while being here My back has gone through a major diet. I have got just about everything as light as I can except for this two things.
cookware. and the pack itself. the pack is a big strulge for me for many reasons.. no one really makes what I want, the pack I have is ok for now so lets talk about food and cooking k.
I have a MSR pot that is big enough to hold both the canister and the 3oz msr burner. the lid gos on and the handle folds over and clamps down on the other side. everything is there.. problem is I know I can do better on weight.
I like eating a hot meal at night, if I were to stop with hot meals I would not need to carry this stuff at all. so.. what do you guys eat if you dont cook?
if I deside that I want hot meals, what kind of mess kits do you have? how much do they weigh? I like the freeze dryed food where you just add hot water.. infact all I have done is boil water as far as making meals is concerned while backbacking.
have any of you tryed that "tuna can stove" thingy?
do I need to get rid of the pocket rocket burner? its light but the canister? I seem to be carrying more fule then I need for an overnight trip which is about the longest I can get away.. also the pot is bigger then I need for boiling water. im sure all together these 3 things weigh about 3 or 4 lbs.. maybe more, I dont really know as I have never put them on a scale.
keep in mind that im not rich:) so our budget for this in under 100 bucks k.. under way under would be good ;D
Just because your paranoid, doesn't mean there not after you!
