Summer is on the go...always looking for new little and big things.  Here's a little one we picked up at the last MEC visit.  No more spaghetti sauce fingers from the Mountain House bag, quite a bit cheaper than the other options (titanium).  Sold!

Brought home a shiny new Penobscot 164.  That covers the big one for now I guess.   ;D

Been out for 4 years and still use the long spoon from IMPs. Still works. :)

I grabbed a similar long spoon a few years back to go with my minimalist pot set and cup. No complaints on either.

Also recently picked up a life straw. More for my truck than anything, but will use it for treks when they come.

Honestly, power tools have been taking up all of my time and spare cash. See the woodworking thread!  ;D

Hell no. Where do you think the taste and texture come from. :)

I carry one on me at work and one if I am going anywhere's I *might* get lost.  $25 is worth it...haven't been able to justify the added expense of the steel (?) one for work purposes though...

I never really thought of food as having *texture* before!   :blotto:
