This week I will go to Lake Tahoe to attempt the Tahoe-Rim Trail without a stove, fuel or pots. All of my foods need little prep besides either open the wrapper or shake the contents with water.

How many other backpackers out there have forsaken their stoves and what is the longest you have gone without cooking?


PS I will be stopping at Echo Lakes for a hot meal 3/4 of the way through the trip though, but I am not cooking it!
