Carrying a small provisions pack is always a good idea if you wander amongst the trees. Being able to eat on the trail and obtain drinkable water is a comfort which should not be overlooked.
Having the means to boil water and cook food requires three essential items:
1. A cooking pot - easily cleaned and light weight.
2. A source of heat - fire, camp stove or a hobo stove.
3. A means to light a fire or gas stove.
Item one (1) on the list can range from a single walled stainless steel thermos to a stainless steel cook pot.
There are many camp pots on the market and most of them will serve you well out on the trail.
In this video, I test out an Oberleben Kessel 2.0 pot which I was very fortunate to receive as a gift.
After testing this cooking utensil out; I can say with certainty, that it is the best cooking pot I have used in a lifetime of being out here.
My old stainless steel pot will now reside in my tipi (teepee) as a permanent fixture and the new pot will be carried with me wherever my wanders take me.
I put the handle on the wrong way in this video. I should have read the instructions. Oops.
