    Hardly a trip report .....

    Last weekend I attended an outdoor cooking event in the Netherlands. Nothing much normally, but it turned out to be one off the coldest weekends in decades. We had the first snow of this winter. It became a chance to really put my gear through the test. More than a trip report, this is a tribute to all those who supplied the excellent products that kept me warm at -20 C (-4F).
    Thanks Brandon for a comfortable Blackbird. Many thanks to Stormcrow and Thorwren for very well performing Crowsnest and Burrow. Brians MatCat Deluxe kept me dry. It is a pity he stopped making excellent tarps.

    Just a few impressions to make it a trip report.

    My setup

    Among many heated tipi tents. The smoke in the background is the start up of char coal making.

    Diner, a wild boar will follow!

    Condensation issue

    Sunday morning. Coffee, tea and bread in the making.

    You all seem to like the cook stands. Here another picture. As you might expect; lots of dutch ovens.

    The cooking event was organized by a dutch (web)shop which sells this stuf http://www.qvist.nl. Have a look at their website (note you can choose a translation into english).
    The fire places are made in Finland.
    Check out http://www.kotakeittio.fi/eng/?ID=1432
    They actualy make very stylish stuff. What you see in my pictures are stripped down versions.

    Cheers

    Me too! Then I remember you can't get a hammock in them. DOH!



    P.S. Great pics, TeeDub! Thanks for sharing.
