Wilderness Cooking Ideas from 1975
I love looking at images of hikers from the 70s wearing flared jeans on the trail, back when 60-pound, external frame backpacks were all the rage. They serve as a good reminder that it is easier (and lighter) than ever to hike into the wilderness.
My friend bought me this gem from 1975: "Roughing It Easy: A Unique Ideabook for Camping and Cooking," which teaches you how to fry eggs and bacon on rocks, how to make a pineapple upside-down cake in the woods, and last but not least, how to make a cake in an orange. These people were not messing around.
