Casey took our oldest three kids on their first backpacking trip this summer. When they returned home, he shared to me which "tools" they took were extremely useful.
I decided to document that here, for our own reference, and in case you'd like this info, too!
|These are washable sporks. One of these for everyone can handle your utensil needs.|
|These mugs have measurements on the inside and can double as measuring cups. The wisk is rubber coated (non melting) and so is safe on a non-stick pan.|
|This pan has a thick aluminum bottom so that the heat distributes quickly and evenly. The lid is awesome for draining noodles.|
|This stove is a little heavier than the super-duper light backpacking ones, but is awesome for basic backpacking needs. It's light "enough" and the flame is powerful and fits perfectly with the little grill size propane can.|
|Take some powdered milk in a ziploc baggy along with instant pudding mix. You'll have a yummy treat that is very light to carry and can be made with water!|
