Back to Camping with no budget!
Having a decent pot while camping is very important, it provides youwith the ability to cook food, boil water for purification and to carry water.
In many outdoor forums, books, videos and sites, people recommend a cooking pot made from a coffee can, and for good reason! The coffee can is lightweight, easy to pack, has measurements that are quantifiable and last but not least, its FREE. You can find these things anywhere and with a little preparation, they can be made into a very fine wilderness cooking pot.
