Been slowly organizing the garage due to the Boss's orders :(
Came across some old stuff. I am very found of the classic stuff I started out with. To me they are all beautiful and functional, although not real light.
On the left is a Sigg-Tourist cook set. Includes 2.5 qt and 3.5 qt pots, pot holder, lid can be used on either pot and as a frying pan. Very easy to clean. Also holds a Svea 123 perfectly.
The knife is a Buck model 121 Fisherman knife, circa early 1970s. Back in the day it was easy to supplement meals with trout and the Sigg pan came in handy.
In the center is a Sierra Cup which was once probably the most common item used by backpackers. The cup on the right is a Rocky cup. The bend in the handle makes is much easier to hold than the Sierra cup, and I found the taller profile more convenient. Both hold about 10 or 12 ounces if I remember correctly.
The Boss prefers I get rid of all the old stuff that takes up space, but I can't bear to part with a lot of it. About once a year I do a weekend trip with all the old gear to include my old Kelty D4 pack. I get a lot of weird comments if I run into people, especially with my white beard and the old aluminum Tracks hiking staff.
