First Episode of Trail Ready

Well, here it is, the 1st episode of Trail Ready. I'm still trying to figure out why the intro is blurry so I can fix that on episode 2. It might have to do with the cartoon effect I used.


  1. Thanks George, I like the down to earth style including the "burnt fingers" I look forward to seeing more and learning a few tricks.

    I was intrigued by your use of what I would consider a too narrow pot for the flame pattern of the stove. Which stove was it?

  2. Great video George! I've been tarp camping for the last 20 years but not exclusively. We always used a through line to give us a tent like pitch but after seeing this, I think I have a new way. Love the unpretentiousness flavor of the video. Looking forward to future tips.

  3. Thanks guys. I wanted to keep it simple and useful, while entertaining.

    @NB That was the Gram Weenie PRO. Flame creep with that combo isn't all that bad, and there aren't many alky stoves that will give a narrow enough flame pattern for a narrow pot. A cannister stove would probably solve that problem, but weigh a little more.

    @John I'll be showing more pitches over time, including your tried and true A frame, which BTW is probably one of the most used pitches ever :).

  4. I received an email today from William Redhawk of Hawk Vittles, and he has indicated he is working on the packaging issue as I type this. As soon as his improved packaging is out I will give everyone an update.
