Hiking and camping have just got a LOT easier for me, because of this little stove by kampMATE. I have been looking into getting one of these bad boys for a while now. If you have read my post “Simplified Car Camping”, you know that I have a goal of making my work at camp as easy as possible. You can read that post here. When kampMATE agreed to send out the WoodFlame Ultra Lightweight Portable Wood Burning Camping Stove for testing and this review, I was just giddy! I have been of the thinking, for a while now, why would I not be using a stove that burned wood for a heat source? I don’t believe that I have ever hiked and/or camped anywhere that did not have twigs, branches, leaves, dead grass, etc. all over the place. Why would I carry a stove that also required me to carry my heat source, when I could find it just lying around anywhere I am going to want to use my stove?
Some of you may know that I had the fortune/misfortune of being a nurse on cruise ships! Good and bad; what an adventure every single day was there. At every port, folks piled off the ships and headed out to do all sorts of adventures; some of which they really should not have been doing. But that is living life, right? No judgement here.
What a fantastic day! I have wandered around this area a few times now, and I am excited to share about it with my readers. While Hogan’s Off Road Park is not high on the list of hiking options, there is certainly plenty to do, in the way of exploring. When I say “hiking options”, I just mean there are no real mountains to climb. There is, however, plenty of ways to exhaust yourself, and your dog(s)!
