Really interesting and thanks for compiling, we're looking to do some camping next year so I've bookmarked this for then! Good tips in the comments as well regarding tin foil thanks! We've got our general packing list up if you want to take a look and add a comment!

Looks like we may take a little more tech than the average traveller!

Clean pots 101
Feb 21, 2012

When heating up a meal that is potentially messy to clean up, I line the pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Clean-up is a lot easier than scrubbing any burnt particles on bottom.

It's always good to take along necessary utensils-- a whisk, a spatula, a microplane grater, etc.-- depending, of course, upon your menu.

Bring along some heavy duty aluminum foil. Use it to cook your fish or cook up pancakes without adding weight to your pack.

I carry a pack of tortillas with me. They make a great 'edible' dinner plate. No dishes to wash.

Thank you, for article "backpacking 101." I have been a day hiker in the past and now, I am very interested in doing some long excursions in the high country. thanks!
