John, think I'll double-check our emergency stuff which is also in a can. Our toolkit is a small Apollo Precision Tools version in a plastic carry-case (I like stuff neatly wrapped...at times with a lovely bow on top). The wire and hatchet are among additions we need.

We switched to Gorilla Tape which is very much like the heavy olive drab green reinforcement tape (aka 'gun tape' or '100 MPH tape') used by the military--a far cry from grey duct tape in terms of holding power.(What's the Best Tape? Abusive Lab Test - Popular Mechanics)

Regarding Michigan...there is a small semi-gourmet restaurant here with a sign outside that reads...."Bears come down from the U.P. just to raid our dumpster." For you non-Michigan folks, U.P. is Michigan talk for upper peninsula and people there are "yoopers."

Pie iron is now on my Christmas list! Thanks. I'm also slimming down my tool collection and clearing out most of the backup canned goods.

Pie iron/waffle iron, never knew they existed, but now it's a must have in my mind.

My tykes eat waffles everyday and missed their breakfast so much on our trip to pickup our trailer, I ended up making it for breakfast and lunch when we got back, they just couldn't get enough.

Great thread! Thanks!

I grew up camping with pie irons. If you have kids, you may want more then one. Very nice addition to dogs and marshmallows for camp fire food. We used them for grilled cheese sandwiches mostly.

mimi just make sure the kids are safe,,, your talking about a hunk of cast iron heated over a fire.

the waffles cooked over a campfire are awsome. of course you can use a coleman stove too. i usually use some matchlight charcoal to have a little pretend campfire, with a few sticks in it for flames for my grand daughters.

in addition,,, they have hot dog irons, cornbread irons,,,all sorts of them.
rome is one brand that makes great stuff for campfire cooking.

Thanks for the reminder John- safety first is our mantra. I like to idea of the pretend campfire though and will borrow that. I'm gonna have to checkout those Rome irons-- we have to get a waffle iron, though it sounds like I'm gonna want a whole assortment and at 4lbs each my ultralight egg is going pack on some lbs!

I learned to tighten the lug nuts on an aluminum rim, very tight.

For your information, I found my pie iron in an unlikely spot; the Eddie Bauer outlet store (Novato, CA). It is very sturdy and is made of cast iron. At 1/2 off it was only $8. I can't guarantee that you'll find one there, but it is worth looking.
