While on a backpacking/mountaineering trip to the Sawtooths in
was tasked with cooking for 13 people. No easy feat with having to consider 35
pounds of food and what stoves and cookware we can pack on our backs.
Primus Njord 2 Burner Backpacking stove
Primus ETA Power
Primus EAT Solo
Primus Power Gas, 3- 450 gram canisters
Bugaboo Base Camper
GSI Pivot tools
GSI Kitchen 23
The ETA solo provides the quick heated water for coffee or tea and hot cocoa. The ETA Power EF is a good extra burner with 2.1 liter of cooking space.
Allow me to introduce the Prince making his debut to the majestic
. My first time using the stove
on a trip like this Idaho Mountains
The Primus Njord, 4 lbs of pure glory for a backcountry cook! The first night I threw on a couple of 3 liter pots and cooked up some Salmon Pesto Linguini.
In the AM put a griddle on the Njord and fried up some trout from the previous nights catch at
Oh my, nothing like fresh fish in the morning Hell
After a tough day climbing up to the Finger of Fate, we return tired and hungry taste buds anxious for Sausage Penne Pasta. The Njord once again impresses us with its power and efficiency @ 7400 ft above sea level.
It’s a different type of task to cook for this many people at any level of remoteness. I can see many applications for this stove for my cooking future.
Climb High and Rock On!
