GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Soloist Complete

GSI Pinnacle Soloist Kit

Cooking on the Pinhoti

Integrated cooking systems intrigue me, I like organization and everything having its own spot.  Ever since the first Jetboil came out I have been hooked.  Sure, I could piece together parts for an ultra-light system or otherwise come up with my own solution, but there is elegance in an engineered system.  GSI Outdoors has been putting together integrated cooking systems for a while now, and I am fortunate enough to have the Pinnacle Soloist Complete system to play with over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

The Light My Fire Titanium Spork was provided by reuseit.com for review purposes.

When I am reviewing anything I try to incorporate the item into my daily activities. I don’t like having surprises on a backpack so I try equipment out before going on a backpack. I have been using a plastic Spork backpacking for about 2 years. The Spork replaced plastic ware from fast food restaurants.  To read more.

My fascination with Titanium products was rekindled 4 years ago when I returned to backpacking. I did some research and found a lot to like about Titanium. It is very strong for its weight. It is toxic free. The metal is non porous and does not scratch easily. Most of all it is easy to clean.

Trail Food Challenge- Breakfast Polenta

April 20, 2010
by Andy Bowman

A few months ago I challenged myself to start trying to create, copy, or use recipes to make my own trail meals. There are plenty of websites and cook books dedicated to this hobby, but I wanted to see just what happens when someone like me tries to make their own food. Anyone can read a cookbook, but how many of us can really use it or its ideas to create palatable and easy to make trail food? Well, my first recipe is up and while I like it, it may not be the thing for you, but you can always give it a try. Breakfast Polenta ala Andy my first creation and I hope you enjoy.
