Paper or Plastic?
A lot of good discussion and suggestions for MOOP reducing and packing it in and packing it out in various threads but I have a question for the BM veterans. Paper or Plastic? What I mean is should we bring paper plates, bowls, cups, and paper napkins or would you suggest plastic utinsels, plates, cups, and bowls that can be washed and reused?
I'm putting together a traveling kitchen kit with a coleman 2 burner stove, teflon and enameled pots and pans, plastic cooking impliments, and a large set of enameled steel tablewares all in a 24" wide by 16" high by 36" long box that will have fold down legs and drop front so that there are two work areas. I also will add pullout cubbies for holding the utinsels, spices, extra 1lb propane bottles, and the enameled plates, cups, and bowls. I have been putting this together for use while truck camping where there is a source of water or facilities to clean with. Obviously, the conditions are different at BM and in both cases you have to wash the pots, pans and cooking utinsles. How about a blend of both? Maybe the traveling kitchen with paper plates, cups, bowls, and paper napkins that can be burned, in the proper way, after use. Less to wash, pack in, and dispose of along the way.
Unless you push your limits how will you ever know where they are?
