Breakfast in the Woods
« on: May 12, 2016, 06:25:57 AM »
Had a nice little outing yesterday morning and decided I should have my breakfast in the woods. I love eating outside.

Pack all loaded up for the adventure



Gear organized



Mayapple everywhere, need to go back when there is fruit



Found a log that naturally split, made for a perfect table





No fire, just used the stove. But I always play with my firesteel



Breakfast is almost ready



Turned out well! Eggs and Canadian Bacon

:thumbsup: A stove does make things more convenient, especially if you have a lot of hiking to do during the day. I presume your burns alcohol? It looks a lot like the DIY cat can stoves I've seen. Eggs and some other protein source is a great way to start the day, especially something like Canadian bacon with a lower sodium content :)

That looked like an enjoyable way to greet the day and relax a little before having to deal with the complexities of life again. :thumbsup:

Nice to get out before the bugs get bad again, too. :spider: :spider: :spider: :spider: :spider: :spider:

That's not exactly true......both kinds of bacon are cured meats, they both contain approximately the same amount of sodium, BUT the Canadian-style does have fewer calories and fat.  'Canadian' bacon comes from the loin of the pig, while what we normally call bacon in the U.S. comes from the belly.

That all looked pretty dang good.  Meals in the woods is always a relaxing treat.  Can't go wrong with that breakfast.  Nice gear setup too!  Thanks for sharing

Looks good to me.

Looks like a great time!  I cannot crack an egg one-handed, especially with gloves on.   :hail:

I have only done the on handed egg trick once. Every other time was a mess.

In any case, nice pics, and it looks like a good time out. I like the big hunk of magnesium on that ferro rod. :thumbsup:
