 AlexW                     I use a primitive system composed of a simple lightweight alum pot from the Salvation Army with top, those heavy plastic Sweedish Army Surplus forks and spoons, a Swiss Army Knife, and my bandana for handling the hot pot. Oh and an REI executive I met in the Olympics gave me a Titanium Fork! Now I'm an Ultralight backpacker!
