A useful idea is to measure the ingredients for a meal before you set off and store them in a ziplock bag labelled individually. Get all your supplies, including Hiking Shoes Ireland at a site like Basecamp, a leading supplier of Hiking Shoes Ireland and other camping equipment.

When cooking outdoors, be sure to cover the pot. It cooks your food faster, save fuel and prevent any debris or insects from getting into your food.

Always store your food effectively or hang it above ground to avoid the attention of any unwanted wildlife!

Take a little oil to rub into a portable grill that will stop food from sticking to it during cooking. Make sure that matches are kept in a watertight container. A bushcraft shop online will be able to meet all the needs of your outdoor catering.
