Autumn hiking and bivouac – Trangia stove 

We probably caught one of the last weekends for our bivouac in the alps. Probably a week to late, the yellow leaves already dropped down. After about close to 3 hours we reached the summit and our campground. On the way up there I spotted a badly wounded tree which blood/resin I took as a fire starter. Two years ago I collected some wood and leaned it to a tree, it was still there so the fire was started really quick. We barbecued some Frankfurter/Kraken and had a good bottle of red wine.

The night was very mild for end of october but quite windy. Tillmann had his sheep skin and thick felt army blanket which were sufficient for the night. Sunrise was great and a task on this trip was to review the abilities of the Trangia alcohol stove with non conform add ons.

First task was to get good coffee, with the Bialetti espresso maker he worked just great.

Second task was to heat up the De Buyer fried egg pan which worked perfect as well.

Unintentionally the Trangia frying pan served as a water cup for Tillmann and the 2 pots for collecting blueberries.

It was a great trip, perfect weather and very comfortable. The Trangia stove added very much to its comfort. The Trangia cooking system is a absolute fool proof compact way to dine outdoors. Alcohol is widely available to run it and has the huge plus that its smell is way better when spilling some of the content than petroleum, diesel or gasoline. Gas cartridges I somehow dislike since they are always a big hassle to get, produce a lot of litter and can not used up all the way. (and are pricy)

If you wonder why this images look somehow familiar to you check a post about this spot two years ago. (it was more than 2 weeks earlier, thats why the leafs look much nicer)

Last weekend we went to the Sarotlahütte in Austria, a perfekt spot for stay for a night and to do further hikes in this area. Snow came early this year and the hut was closed, as most huts at high altitude do. We enjoyed the warm sun the stunning panorama and of corse our “Brotzeit” / picknick up there.

Today I received a test sample of the Trangia Cooking Set 25-3 UL by Scandic. This is just a short unboxing post. This outdoor cooking set will be tested within the next weeks on my outdoor trips. I´m just sick about broken O-rings and leaking high tech and high powered multifuel burners. Without any doubt the Trangia is the “Landrover Defender” of the outdoor stoves. Im really optimistic it will proof my expectations.

River camp and fish

From time to time you should meet with friends or a friend to spent a night under the sky, with some booze, a campfire and good stuff for the barbecue. Good friends bring good stuff and the best the best stuff. Starting with some excellent pear spirit called No1 we continued with a giant trout and a saibling. I was curious that it would get a real mess to eat the fish but it wasn´t and the taste of those two great fish were worth it. Enough to feed 4 guys, but we nearly made it and the rest were shared with our two 4 legged companions. The water level on the river rose so it wasn´t as crystal clear as some weeks before.

The de buyer egg pan proofed 100% to be a must have for outdoor camping but the feuerhand lantern is too leaky when not carried upright all the time. (Probably transporting it empty and just refilling it with the absolute must is the key). You will end up having petroleum perfume surrounding you.

This is one of the standart hikes we do when weather is bad or the snow is still trapped in the mountains. Not too high in altitude but in a nice surrounding – scenery. At the end of the valley there is the village Schönenbach which is only inhabited in summertime. Famous for their milk and cheese we do not fail to restock some local made stuff there.

Topodesigns Klettersack Navy/Leather

A special version of Topodesigns Klettersack with leather bottom and the lower sides. Very handy for placing the backpack on wet or rough ground. It keeps the rucksack dry and protects the Cordura (Not that 1000 Cordura needs too much protection, it´s already a tough material). The name Klettersack is earned by its functionality and solid construction. The weak spot of a Backpack is always the Zippers. As you can see Topo uses big and tough YKK ones. The lifetime of a Zipper defines the lifetime of your bag. They are hard to replace and if possible, it gets expensive. Avoid a backpack by all means with to small ones or those fancy watertight ones (they are crap).

The size of the backpack with 22 litres is just perfect for your daily use, a day in the mountains or other outdoor activities. With the straps and the additional ones available you will be able to increase the capacity to your needs. I got a serious faible for backpacks and I guess sooner or later my collection will be expanded by a Topo one. (and one with a broken/faulty zipper will get retired).
