I use a Jetboil and cook/eat whatever is fastest and easiest to prepare and clean up after. I'm usually out for photography and morning and evenings, especially, are not times when I want to be cooking and washing dishes.

agreed, my alcohol stove would make short work of melting the rest of those things. Still really cool design, I would be interested to see how the kettle holds up to water and the structure when poured. Nice space saving design, I use the similar rimmed plate/bowls and they works great.

I do the same with Photography, being on the road full time though gives me more leeway to cook on the not so "photographic" days!. Being without refrigeration however for over 6 years now there really is not much clean up needed and I generally cook something that will remain for a couple of days. Again, with the simplicity of no refrigeration all is so much more easier with specially no spoilage. [hey, I am still alive...]
I wrote to them in England to see if they would ship some of those products here. Will let you know how they hold up if so. I generally write a bit about what we use, never claiming they are the best products, just sharing.
Stay well. Ara and Spirit

As long as the kettle was full, it wouldn't matter if the flame hit the silicone body. You can boil water in a plastic soda bottle as long as the flame only contacts where there is water on the other side - sounds crazy but it works - give it a try.

Silicone (or at least certain grades) are very heat tolerant - I've used silicone moulds to cast lead in the past.

Where did this motor home come from? There is a small camper here at The Oasis, a shipping container, fire pits, solar Oven, sorry, but no refrigeration for the few weeks a year we are here to regroup. Consider it a storage. I call it a "Base Camp".

Stay well.

This is what you were rolling when I met you. A mutual "friend" told me you had upgraded to a motorhome. Maybe it was some other fellow?

I try to eat as well as I can afford while living off my bike or traveling, sometimes that means Ramen noodles. (with hot sauce packets from gas stations)








Sometimes when life is real good I can get some fresh meat early in the day to eat out on the trail.





















Or even better when I can catch some dinner.













Though sometimes I have traded a little work for some grub, no shame here.










Though pasta is good too.
















Fresh shrimp on the beach in Mexico is always cost effective and tasty.






And on some days there's just a liquid dinner. And that's OK too.

I usually eat canned stuff, and some sort of meat and veggie that I pick up at a local place along the way.

I usually heat the canned stuff right in the can and my preferred way to cook a steak is to toss it right on the coals. It cooks the outside really quick and leaves the inside nice and rare... Just perfect!





... Of course, if you're in bear country, this isn't a great way to do it!

Not the vehicles BeemerChef has traveled in while living his life how he sees fit over many years while sharing it so elegantly with the ADV community, Tex.
