<< Regarding cooking inside a tent. DON'T
Reasons: 1. It's called First, Second, and Third Degree burns!!
2. It fills your tent with food smells which tend to get trapped inside.
We're not going to get into the discussion of whether you should keep food
inside your tent again, are we?
3. Tents don't tend to hold up very well to the slightest contact with
fire. Note: The resulting holes tend to let in critters, creatures, and
rain, snow, cold, etc., which is the purpose of using a tent in the first
Reason 4. The smells from cooking food will stay with the tent for days. If
there are any bears around looking for food. Guess who they will come visit.
They will be hungry, having not found any blueberries or blackberries to eat,
because WE hikers have eaten all of them.
