    Default Another solo overnighter

    Did a solo overnighter on Saturday night. I got there later than I wanted and so I took the first suitable spot I came across. I used a tarp, Tyrek sheet for a ground cloth, two sleeping pads, a canvas drop cloth as a blanket, and an alpaca wool poncho. The temps got down to about 40 that night. The next morning while I was making breakfast, I happened to notice yellow jackets flying around. Took a look and right behind my tarp was an underground nest! Luckily, I didnít get stung. I cooked my usual caveman steak and also made a fruit cobbler. The top of the cobbler got a little burnt but it was fine. Thereís trout in the creek but I didnít fish any. Every time I try to fish, the only thing I catch is a sunburn. I pictured my two most used tools. The sak for cutting bank line, and the axe for a fire poke and tongs.

    The nest is between the tree and the rock.

    Looks like a nice place to camp.

    It's always nice to get away. Nice pics.

    Looks like you found a little oasis. Note to self, check for underground nests before setting camp

    So Iím not a good cook and didnít measure anything, but I just opened up some packs of fruit, dumped in some yellow cake mix, and placed a couple plats of butter on top. To cook, I balanced it on top of two rocks with some coals underneath to get the juices flow up through the batter. And I had foil covering the top to place coals on. Every so often I would turn the cup and place new coals on top. After several minutes I peek for done-ness.

    Thank you. I was very curious about if and how you covered it. I have used aluminum foil before too. Thank you for taking the time to respond! Merry Christmas!

    Itís just like making one in a Dutch oven, just on a smaller scale. This one wouldíve been plenty for two people. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
