Camping,fishing, and hunting are my version of therapy. Most of my trips are in Texas, with the exception of a trip to Colorado and Washington.

Charles's Bio

I'm always looking for gear that is light weight, simple to operate, and kid friendly so my boys can use it too.

While I'm experienced at hunting and fishing, backpacking is new to me so I'm still trying to find the best gear for 3 season camping and hiking.

As a relative newbie to ultra light backpacking, I bought this set at the suggestions of a seasoned backpacker buddy of mine. We went on a 3 day trip and packed in mostly freeze dried foods and MRE's. The primary use for these were for boiling water and making coffee. Seeing that we had 5 campers, having this set allowed me to meet the needs of the entire camp. Since I will typically be heading out with my son in tow, this was a great set for me to start with. I will warn you, cooking scrambled eggs is an art in a titanium pan when your used to teflon coating. I suggest packing in a set of the humangear GoToobs so you can easy carry some cooking oils and your favorite seasonings.

I was looking for a backup utensil to carry in case I lost or damaged my spork so I decided to order the Snow Peak Chopsticks. I really enjoyed having them with me on a spring break camping trip, but I find myself using them every week as I head out to my favorite Sushi bars. They are easier to use than the cheap throw away sets you get in the restaurants and make for a great conversation piece. I know several other backpackers and campers that have ordered them after seeing my set. I carry them with my in my work backpack and I'm ordering a second set to leave in my Ospry pack as a backup.
