Two weeks until I hit the trail (Saturday, June 27th).
Exchanged my Superfeet insoles today – copper for green. The copper ones molded to my feet in ways that were just creating hot spots, as I found out yesterday in Forest Park. Thanks to the staff at the Alpine Shop who were helpful and understanding.
Today’s featured equipment is my cook set (Evernew Titanium Pot and Trail Designs Sidewinder Stove). Here it’s all packed up along with my titanium spork, silicone spatula, and 8 oz alcohol flask. In the other pic it’s out of the bag along with the stakes used to support the pot. The top doubles as a fry pan.
Below it’s set up in wood burning mode. The alcohol burner is in front of the stove. The stove will also burn solid fuel tablets. The whole set up without fuel and utensils weighs in at just 11 ounces.
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials. – Confucius
