Yeah I've been bold enough to drink cool, clear, flowing stream water and definitely spring water, but I've only drank lake water after pumping it through a filter.

I'm sure in some areas it's safe. In the areas I camp, I worry more about a beaver upstream than about man made pollution. Giardia is not something I want...

When we went moose hunting in the Minnesota BWCA we were warned not to use the water from the streams or creeks and if we did to boil the water for 20 minutes . Same reason "Beaver Fever"
We took lake water , strained it , boiled it and then through in some water purification tablets . Contrary to popular belief adding booze to water does not make it safe , at least that's what I've been told.

learn to make bread with what you have

I really enjoy making bread. Loaf, flatbread, stick, buns, sweet, savory; only four ingredients and the same four ingredients so it is up to the baker to make what they want. The oven, pot, pan, fire, charcoal are just a means to an end. I'd encourage you to give it a go and keep at it until you achieve your idea of 'bread' or pancakes. A simple start might be naan bread in a cast fry pan over an open fire. Someone suggested a cast dutch oven, which would even out the temperature concerns and makes a terrific loaf even at home. Bannock on a stick.

Have fun and as they said in the 70s "just do it"

I think quite a few people bake bread when they're camping. Here's an older discussion on baking in a Cobb Cooker. That's not the trailer oven, of course, but the topic is sourdough.

I have an old "vintage" West Bend Aluminum Ovenette. It sits atop the flame ring on a stove burner. Other than the base ring, which is steel, the rest of it is aluminum. This sucker can get insanely hot if you run the burner on anything but low flame, and I don't trust the bimetallic coil thermometer in the lid, so I snake a wired probe thermometer under the dome. It works great but you do need to monitor your temp. setting closely until it stabilizes where you want it. Although they aren't made any more, you can still find them at thrift stores, garage sales, and even on E-Bay.
I prefer to use my Cuisinart toaster oven if I have power available, as it is much easier to work with, but if you're boondocking, this little rig works good. I suppose that you can use a Dutch Oven to do the same thing, but it's just an old throwback, (like me.)
