Scoutmaster: A Highly Evolved Mess Kit

Scoutmaster: A Highly Evolved Mess Kit

Boy, did this post bring back memories. As an Eagle scout, I can remember many pleasant and painful outdoor adventures. There was always an emphasis on trying to pack less. I recall taking a 10+ day backpacking trip (Philmont Ranch for all you past Boy Scouts) and bringing along only a single AA flashlight, instead of something fancier. If you didn't absolutely need it, you left it at home.

Cooking supplies always boiled down to two items: a spoon and a Sierra Cup (one for milk and one for meat, of course). Toss in a basic Swiss Army knife, and you were good to go for any meal.

Ahhh, good times. Not very civilized, or even sanitary, but none the less, good times.

This is my third post in a row related to meals. Why is that?
