MSR Whisperlite Stove
the NOLS Cookery

Monday, January 5, 2009

Eating well is the key to being comfortable in the wilderness. Anything that can be made in a fully stocked kitchen can be easily made in a simple field kitchen. Each field kitchen should have the MSR Whisperlite as its cornerstone. The MSR Whisperlite stove is reliable, easily maintained and fuel efficient. My Whisperlite is fifteen years old and has prepared hundreds of meals and hot drinks in all sorts of conditions and temperatures. From brewing coffee to baking stromboli its the choice of many wilderness expeditions.

Check out the NOLS Cookery as a great resource for rations planning and easy recipes for weekend or expedition camping adventures. Its info is based on the input from the world’s most experienced wilderness travelers.
