Thought we should start a thread for wilderness pics. Fun day out hiking. Did a little recon on an area I had not visited in a couple years. Looks like it's good for camping, as I did not see another Human foot print... I made a small fire for heat and made some lunch. Low impact!!!
I scrapped the forest floor down to solid ground for my fire area. I did not make a fire ring, so I never walked even 3 feet away. I had all the fuel I needed with me before ignition.
I hate alcohol stoves-they are crap!
I like my little canister stove from brunton. It's very similar to the pocket rocket from MSR.
Boiled me tea in 3.5 minutes from cold water.
Cook up a couple dogs!
Kept the fire small, but it kept me warm.
After I was finished i poured enough water into the pit to make soup. VERY IMPORTANT!!! NO coals, embers, can be alive. After that I covered the spot back over with the dirt I originally moved.
Another angle show that not much sign of the fire remains..
Hatchet sitting just left of where the fire was.
Fun hike and good lunch...
