Ok, let's see your camp kitchens and what kind of set-ups you have.

Thanks, although I can only take credit for some minor fine-tuning. Otherwise it's the standard design from a CampaATT South African expedition trailer.

What's killer to me is being able to pull over at mealtime, lower the counter, and have a full kitchen instantly ready to go. Used to be, all the unpacking and set-up hassle of digging out the stove, unburying the cooler, etc., generally limited trail-side meals to cold sandwiches. Now, I can have a steak and vegetables on the grill in seconds flat.

Here's what I'm talking about, from a week ago, coming out of the Saline Valley. Instant picnic-on-the-fly.

Well there's more than just food in there... Don't forget the beer and margarita fixings!

It's actually pretty much a mini-village, all folded up. Hot water heater, shower, 8' x 8' two-story tent, sink, firepit, 40 gallons of water ... yeah, ruffin it!

Jim, no worries, and didn't mean to sound anything but jovial. (With a trailer-ful of margaritas and beer, I don't have a choice!)

Now you're talking! My bar is generally parked in the desert, so the snow is very scarce (see a couple of rare exceptions below).

So the principal pasttime becomes the endless squeezing of limes....

Jimjet stole my setup.

I've got one of those MSR whisperlight things, but I rarely use it. Actually, I end up using it at home more than the trail. I've been known to cook on the exhaust with tinfoil to avoid having to haul around a grill or build a fire.

I am absolutely rediculous about carrying the absolute bare essentials. I'll cut my toothbrush in half even when camping in a vehicle. When I hike, it's ON! One man against practicality and common sense.

On occasion, when I decide to get luxurious, I break out the Engal and a charcoal grill, but usually others have to coax me into it.

Cheers,

Kennith

Those Drifta's look like a fancier version of something I used to use: the "Grubby One" chuck box (http://blueskykitchen.com/Grubby_One.html).

Thanks for the warning! I'll be sure to keep a wary eye out around town for your levitating DII. But bring bolt-cutters; the trailer's innards are secured by a total of 26 padlocks. (That's how it came, actually, and fortunately all keyed alike.)

That Hillbilly setup looks cool. Do the folding handle pans work on the CampStand? About how much does the large fry pan weigh?
