My favorite part of the experience would have to be the cooking. The tiny burner I purchased handled extremely well. I was also worried that my 30 L pack would be too small for an overnight hike, but it's not. I think a two night trip would be possible with some inventive packing.
The solar charger I purchased also held up well. I was able to charge my phone twice and CB's once before the reserve battery was empty. This will help a lot with charging our cameras and recording equipment.
Lastly, the ax and knife preformed their jobs admirably. We used both to create kindling to start our campfire.
I want to close out this post with my favorite experience of the trip. Right before we went to bed the sky cleared up and the thousands of stars that appeared was quite inspiring. I can't wait to see a star field when we are out in Montana and Wyoming.
