Camp Stoves.

The old Coleman stove finally gave up. Very poor design for a $70.00 single burner stove that was only 7500 btu. I just could not find a well-built Coleman propane stove. Then comes Camp Chef Everest 2 Burner Stove. Imagine 20,000 btu’s per side. Wow. I have had it now for about a month and say this puppy is just great. Solid and well-built. The dials are much better than Coleman. I can actually simmer and do a slow cook without burning the pot or pan. This stove is larger than the Coleman 2 burner stove. So that means I can comfortably use my 10 inch┬áskillet and still have room for another skillet or large pot for the other burner. All for $ 109.00 at REI. You can get it online on Amazon for $99.00.

Traveling is so exciting that even a few miles makes for adventure. But traveling farther is even more of an adventure. So after a stop over at Cedar City, UT for a couple of Wal-Mart camping in the parking lot nights I got on the road and headed east to Colorado. But first there is a stop over at Capitol Reef National Park. Man I love this place. Be ready to get primitive in your luxuries like wi-fi to follow your stuff. The place is in a canyon and there is nothing and I mean nothing. Visually speaking it is mind-blowing. Lots of trails. There is also access to water, dump station, flush toilets. If your tent camping you get grassy areas on which to pitch your tent. The images give you a better idea of what to expect at Capitol Reef. And when in Torrey which is the local town stop at Slackers Burger Joint for a hell of a burger and fries!
