So, I been thinking about my list for my upcoming escapades. Something about a cooking stove seems a little unnecessary. I can eat lots of stuff cold outta cans, and even still, with a proper mess kit, I could just cook over a fire. I plan on being out there for a long time. A year, at least. For any of ya'll who've been out there for long stints, is a cooking Stove really a necessary addition to an already heavy pack?
