With a slight deviation from our posted schedule, this weeks net will be on one of our favorite topics - FOOD. In particular, we will be discussing camp kitchens. Having camped for a number of years, Tom and I have seen quite a few variations of the camp kitchen - everything from minimalist kitchens to something like what one would expect at home. It seems that the type of kitchen you prefer is likely to reflect your personal taste in outdoor cuisine. Having a well equipped kitchen, however, does not mean that you have to pack enormous amounts of gear or spend a lot of money. On the contrary, with careful planning and the right equipment, a well equipped kitchen is easy to pack, easy to set up and easy to take down.

One of the things that we have learned over the many years we have been doing this is that good meals are a unique and sensational complement to the great outdoors. Few things can top a terrific meal overlooking a great vista. Just because you are camping in wilderness or primitive conditions is no reason to dine like a primitive. If you enjoy good meals at home, there is no reason why that same level of quality is not possible at camp.

One last thing that we have learned is that there are many ways to set-up a great camp kitchen and we would like to see your set-up, preferably with pictures and a narrative.
