Do you guys prefer to bring skewers for hooking food over a fire or do you use sticks?

    I just use sticks but sometimes I bring a foldable cooking grate. I get some coals burning and dig a small hole away from the fire, move the coals to it and rest the grate on top. If I'm cooking something in a pot it's very convenient.

    Casuals. you're not really an outdoorsman unless you have the high vanadium steel 'Shenandoah' edition skewers from REI, MSRP $65 for a pack of 3. And as an added bonus they come with a very thoughtful walnut and crushed velvet case.

    I for one cannot imagine using anything less on my trips. Anything else is best left to the peasantry.

        i typically jerk off in camp at least 3 or 4 times a night to minimize my weight, but using the skewers of nobility is a sacrifice i'm willing to make.

    we could turn this thread into "things you can DIY instead of buying"
    an example is how the fuck do you tie excess webbing on a backpack? I've tried rubber bands, tying with paracord, it's all less than ideal. I don't wanna buy the convenient clippy things

      Cut it and cauterize it. Webbing was designed for military and professional use, not for zoomer gays who're afraid of modifying their overpriced REI man-purse.

      Failing that, stitch it down to the fabric with a carpet needle and heavy thread. Pull the stitches if you eventually have to reconfigure. You didn't even think of stitching, did you? Because it's a craft and a skill, can't be having that when out on our wilderness strolls.

      I hate all of you urban weekenders, but at least you're trying. I love the trying.

        There's webbing on shoulder straps that's always going to be the same length but there's also webbing and buckles for holding shit to the pack, I don't want to cut the length of that, it's fucking retarded.

        Why do you guys shit on people who like to go hiking or camping on the weekends or whenever they have time off? What, do you want them to quit their full time jobs to do nothing but dedicate their time to camp n shit?

          Ideally, yes, but not necessarily. I do wish they'd lurk more.

          The people most qualified to have opinions about PrepHole are people who go PrepHole for a living: hunting, fishing, and wilderness guides, bush pilots, rangers and (some) park workers, arborists, field biologists/ecologists/geologists, and, dare I say it, military or paramilitary scouts/forward operators.

          The PrepHoleists with the most and loudest opinions are weekenders, which is understandable since this is a website founded on Japanese cartoons and comic books, but a lot of them suffer from delusions of grandeur. It can be fucking annoying.

          Anyone who has used his 7-9 consecutive days of vacation to at least hike a challenging route, camping each night along the way, or spent days tracking through the middle of nowhere (which I do all the time, largely because fly fishing in the remotest areas miles from any road is very satisfying to me) has graduated from weekender status.

          And everyone with a full-time job is capable of doing these things. I work full-time as a CNC machinist and spend all of my excess cash on fishing gear.

          Anyway, here's a pic I recently snapped.

            If you limited posts to people with a 24/7/365 outdoor lifestyle, this board would be dead because nobody would post here. That includes you, you gatekeeping asshole.

    Why would you need skewers? Just hold one end of the meat over the fire with your hand until one half is cooked then flip it around.
