Cooking Equipment (For Four People)

We have learned that cutting out cooking gear can save an immense amount of weight. We only bring items that are versatile and can serve many purposes (e.g. a cooking pot lid that converts into a frying pan, metal spoons that can be used for cooking and eating, and our favorite: Sierra cups which can serve as cups, mugs for hot drinks, bowls and also can be used as a quick cooking pot).

Our own list is drastic, since we believe that when cycling with kids it is far more important to haul an extra piece of warm dry clothing (what child doesn�t get wet and dirty in the outdoors?) than to carry a few more dishes. The result is that each of us has one spoon and one Sierra cup to eat from--with two spare metal spoons and two extra Sierra cups to cook with.

  • 6 Sierra cups (4 large and 2 small)
  • 2 lightweight plastic bowls
  • 2 metal spoons
  • 4 nylons spoons (very lightweight and durable)
  • 2 metal eating knives
  • 1 Swiss army knife
  • 1 small spatula
  • 1 pot holders
  • 2 cooking pots: one with convertible lid for frying pan
  • 3-4 roll up camping food tubes for jam, butter, etc.
  • 1 lightweight backpacking stove that can run any kind of fuel (gasoline, kerosene, and white gas--since you never know what fuel will be available)
  • 2-3 fuel bottles
  • 3-4 feet of aluminum foil (for a wind screen around our backpacking stove)
