PS: sorry, carried away and off topic by the thrill of the landfill question...
We use a microwave
inside Peanut, a few basic cooking dishes and paper/cornstarch/wheat dishes.
We have a single-burner butane cooker for outside with one little matching non-stick frypan and a silicon spatula. (All light
Paul makes little smokies & scrambled eggs in the microwave
, steamed yams & carrots, and many other foods including mug cakes & main dishes. So much to learn!
We limit clean-up and drainage. We keep it simple. We keep the waste down. Used cornstarch/wheat dishes make nice fire kindling.
Thanks for the kind comments about the minimalist approach. It's the way we've always camped, as simple as possible. And there's always a weenie over an open fire, or a can of heated beans.
When we gutted Peanut and saw all the damage, broken water lines (etc.), rusted metal and severed propane
lines, etc.... We scraped it out, cleaned it up and neither of us could bear putting anything back that could cause such a mess again. So we went for dryer, simpler options.
Great thread. But then, I'm hungry right now, so I'm especially ravenous for this information.
