Rumaan Forest Camp out - 10-11 Nov 2010

 On this campout we concentrated on cooking.  Our troop had just received a number of new dutch ovens and our instructions for this campout, was "NO CHEATER FOODS".  We had to plan menu's where we did real cooking.  It was a new experience for some of us.  We mostly made beef stew.  It's hard to mess up and generally tastes good.
 Each patrol was in charge of their own food.  Here you can see guys chopping up and preparing food for their stew.

 a new day, a new meal.  Looks like one guy is cooking and everyone else is looking.
 Isn't it about done yet?  It smells wonderful on an empty stomach!
MASS MURDER!!!...... Oh, wait, it's a ten mile hike.  We are taking a short rest at about the half way point.  Mr LL & Mr D just about killed us all!


  1. I loved your comment on this one! I didn't realize there were trees in Wadi Rum!

  2. I didn't get to go on the campout so I'm really glad for the pictures and the clever commentary. Thanks Jared!
