Don't bring all of it. You need the pot, that's where all the bulk is, but you don't need both bowls (if you even need one) sporks or mugs.

I use a MSR Blacklite aluminum set for all my solo or family camping. We will just supplement with a cast iron skillet when we are car camping and have that type of meals planned. We family camp with our MSR Dragonfly too. Havenít felt a need to get a bit two burner deal.

We are now at the ages (8,6,4) where the kit is starting to get smaller again more toward backpacking size and hope to take more rugged trips with the little ones.

Tried out a new coffee drip filter thing.





It came out pretty good. Unfortunately i can't use it with the duelist coffee "cups" since they're shaped more like bowls.

Yeah, that's my only issue with the Duelist set. That's why I switched to instant packets.

Had you and I talked about this already? I switched last year too...to this:



https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01316CUK2

I'd read about it on Wirecutter (https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-instant-coffee/) and it really is delicious coffee. I even got a jar of it to use at home when I'm feeling lazy.

No, but I'll definitely check it out! I just use Starbucks Via packets. They're ok.

had plans to car camp in the Brown Mtn area outside of Morganton, NC on Saturday night and go up to Wiseman's View to hopefully catch the Brown Mtn Lights. But now it looks like there's a strong possibility of a winter storm that is supposed to hit this weekend, so there goes that probably.

So my last "xmas present to myself" came in today. I ordered a klymIt insulated static v sleeping pad. I ordered a Lite, but curiously enough, inside the Lite bag was a Luxe sleeping pad. Not I'm stuck between taking the free $25 upgrade, and sending it back because it's heavier and much bigger than what i initially ordered.

WWOTD?

Thanks Kai. Normally I get a small jar of Mexican instant coffee from the Mexican grocer. I forget the brand, but it's the best instant stuff I have found so far, and they have a small jar that is perfect for trips.

Next month Ill be in Tucson and will have a day to myself.
I want to do a day hike someplace around the area.

Any suggestions on where to go? Moderate day hike outside of city would be nice. None of that paved hiking trails
Properly marked and worn out trails though, as Id be by myself.
While Id like to be as far away from people, Id prefer not get lost, or have to cut off my arm off because it got stuck below a boulder

I once went with a friend for a hike in NM. Trail marks were barely visible and we got lost for a good 30 mins. Although we got lost, we could easily get back to civilization, as the highway was visible from that altitude, and I did enjoy being in completely unmolested area.


Are trails and parks even open? Forgot about Trump's wall.

Spammer^^?

Has anyone tried these brands of instant coffee?


The Via is pretty good, but I really don't like giving money to Starbucks.

anybody been to any of the museums at the Grand Canyon in the last ten years? if so, you've possibly been exposed to 400 times the adult health limit for uranium. 4,000 times the limit for children. terrifying.

Planned a trip with my buddy a few months ago for next weekend; Friday through Sunday (8th, 9th, and 10th). His brother in law wants to come, it will be his first camping trip ever...

Great trip to start on:

I don't know why I didn't have one of these because container fetish. And I'm always worried about my phone riding and hiking. And Pelican cases have a pressure valve, so there's that. My phone and wallet fit. There's room for a lighter and a knife, and there is 1/2" left. I'm thinking a small first aid kit and a "space blanket."
