Cooking Kit of Andy of HoboTraveler.com
Hi Mr. Andy,
NIce little video. My ears perked up about the electric shock. I couldnt really tell,but seemed no third prong on electric cord for ground. Is that typical?
If so, I believe I need to read up on my laptop safety issues.
Watching this video reminded me of something. Maybe you have sisters old enough to remember something called Suzie Homemaker Oven, Suzie Bake Oven or something like that. This might seem oddball..hehe. I swear I remember my sister making some of the best brownies or little cakes you ever tasted in one of those things. It was just basically a little metal box using a 100 watt bulb or maybe more to bake. Sure enough would have a complete gourmet kitchen then...hehe
Take Care Farmboy.
Excellent overview of your cooking system. I appreciate that you took the time and did a comprehensive explanation for those of us who it helps to see the entire mobile kitchen.
When I look at all the items it seems like a very inexpensive total kit cost. The payback from food costs savings must be pretty quick.
I will slowly try to explain components of the system because I am sure if you started to use this system you would realize.
I do have a couple of spoons, that were not included by accident. I use the plastic dippers as bowls, so they are my bowls and plates. Plus I use them to protect items inside like lightbulbs.
Everyitem I carry has many uses, not just one use, this to me is the real leasson. Try to use each item for one use, try to put gear in your pack that can be for multiple uses.
I do not know the MSR Whisperlight multi fuel oven, I took a look, it would be nice to use many fuels.
I use alcohol because there is no smell, so the owners of hotels do not get angry.
Smell, noise, and cooking smells are a problem if you wisht to secretly cook in your room.
I purchased a second light bulb socket the other day to heat up my camera. I place in a small closet and keep the camera inside. I was thinking of rigging up a unit inside that plastic bucket and seeing if it would work.
I am pretty sure I could make a little over pretty fast or even try cooking from the bottom with a lightbulb or two.
