I am preparing for a camping trip in the next month or so. This is going to be a primitive camping trip with at least 2, maybe 4 people in Ocala National Forest. This is to be 4 days, with nothing but what we have on our backs. Right now we’re getting gear together to work on practicing skills, enjoying the weather..etc. I’ve been camping with these guys before, but generally its on a defined camp site, within short walk if any walk at all to a freshwater spigot, toilets, parking..etc. This time we just want to go out further into the sticks. Right now we’re looking at a couple different trails, the smallest one being 8 miles, but the longest one being something like 24 miles.
You don’t always have the space for a full stove, and if you can cut down weight in your pack while still keeping what you need, thats a good thing. This is a very small camping stove you can make for about $5 that will work for heating up food and drink while out in the trail
