Good thing we brought the kitchen sink for holding snow. @toesalad is already in his booties. Time to start melting snow for water.
Not exactly roughing it! Our “hut” is a brand new cabin with wood burning stove, electric heater (!) and camp beds. Very comfortable accommodations. The park made sure to warn us about the lack of amenities at this site: no lights or running water or cooking pots etc.
This is the most deluxe “lack of amenities” we’ve ever had!
Gear to share with @toesalad.
Smart water bottles are for holding “dirty” water. We find they are the perfect bottles for squeezing with sawyer filter.
MSR reactor stove and pot system. Stove nests in pot with fuel canister, kitchen towel and cooking spoon.
Red MSR Dromedary water bladder. Will use if we can scoop water from river (we couldn’t, too dangerous)
Blue Sea to Summit “Kitchen Sink” - will use for holding and melting snow for water if we can’t scoop from river. This is what we used.
First aid and repair kit.
Toilet paper and trowel.
Damien took pot and stove kit and I carried everything else.
Personal & sleep stuff
Sleeping bag, pillow and case. Mats at shelter
Water bladder and tube
Hand warmers for phone (didn’t work so well, toe warmers with adhesive might work better), camera and lens, titanium bowl/mug with cozy, spork and titanium mug with sleeve, gear bag with journal, pen, battery charger, charge cord (not shown), earbuds and cord (mostly in case we share shelter with a snorer, we didn’t - had shelter to ourselves), phone case attaches to backpack, toiletries and face cloth.
Forgotten item- headlamp!
