No Sheite! I saved about $60 by buying a regular old grill from the K-mart, and sawing it in half.........Waalaaa.......a Travel Grill !
I also have several of those $90 Tarps, only I paid about $5 for mine. So, I think I've saved enough for a complete tire change!

Yep, they are a little costly but IMO well worth the money. I actually bought 2 of the travelers grills for my cook platform and one of the Streamside travelers for cooking meat on the side.

They are made from 600 series stainless 1/4" tubing. And cool very fast. While cooking I can actually grab the grill within inches of the flame and it isn't hot. While I have two stoves going inside the cook platform the platform never gets hot from heat transfer which to me is a big plus.

If treated right they will last me years. All 3 of mine are going on two years old and still look new.

You get what you pay for when it comes to good camp gear.

How about good old Dinty Moore Beef Stew, cooked over the campfire? Granted it's not as good as what some of you guys are cooking up, but, hey, we're talking about roughing it, ya know?

I can get a good steak anywhere, but Dinty Moore? Over a campfire? In the middle of nowhere? The best there is! I don't want to take many of the comforts of home with me when I go "over the road". I want to leave that crap at home. I want to go your basic "native".

T100 1st long trip

This is my T100 during my first long (5 day) trip.

The main luggage is a Venture pack/rack combo.
Most of my clothes ended up in the tank back along with the camera and the HAM radio
The food/tools/cooking stuff is all in the Venture bag and then my daypack and laptop are strapped on top of that
The fuel for the camp stoves is inside the bag, the red MSR bottle outside is spare gas just in case.
Since then I have gotten a better stuff sack/compression sack for the sleeping back, and will be getting panniers/cases of some sort before I go on another trip.
Another view

Where do you guys pack a wet tent? I've been storing my tent in an ortlieb dry bag but so far haven't had to pack it up wet after a night of rain. Do you just shake off as much as you can and pack it up in the dry bag or somewhere else?

I just pack mine up, stuff it back in the bag and throw it in my Sealine Dry bag (where I always pack it). Doesn't hurt a thing. It'll dry out the next night.

In the tent bag Seriously, it's one of the reasons my tent is in a bag of its own. If it's not raining when I break camp I'll wipe it down with a microfiber rag to get as much moisture as I can, off. Next stop I'll either pitch the tent again or, if going home, take it out to dry before storing it for the next trip.

You can store a wet tent in a bag for a couple days with no ill-effect. As long as you then dry it out thoroughly after a couple days it will be fine.

if it opens on the side, you'll have to remove the pannier/saddlebag etc to access tools.

end opening allows access while loaded

Above is the entire settup folded down with the Primus stove. Below shows how it all fits in the lid of one Jesse.

Its also pretty much windproff and as you can see here it works out pretty nice,

First BRAVO on a great cooking grill setup. What did you use for the enclosure sides? Did you use stainless steel for the actual grill supports? Are the three sides hinged or are they "joined" together? Again, one of the best items of all the good items I have seen on this thread. Details would be most appreciated.
