Learning about my Kelly Kettle

Fire in the hole!

Learning to boil water. That used to be a sarcastic joke I told about fellow women who were well educated and had a fantastic social life but could not cook. It has become a different kind of joke with my new Kelly Kettle.

I’m pretty sure I can light a quick cook fire that burns down to a steady bed of coals. I can turn pancakes golden brown without black spots, bring a pot of coffee to a boil and have a corner of the pit that is burning limbs to use for more charcoal if needed… in the rain! I’m rather proud of my fire-pit skills. I could hardly get my Kelly to flame. Oh the shame of it all!

How timely, here is help. Now I will look for fat wood (and not look down my nose at the thought of it being needed for a simple campfire). Funny, but after watching David’s video, I feel the need for a certain beach on the Washington State Peninsula.

A Kelly Kettle

I was not supposed to be home when it came…. but I was.

We have not been camping for quite a while. Our income has not allowed it for a stretch of time. We still have to be careful, but it looks like we may be able to take a couple of trips if we can do it for the price of gas in the Big Green Bud. Now if I can just keep myself from buying too many new toys. Because I’m thinking we need this stove and pot (or at least the pot) Giggling is the sound of the day

3march-2-2017-kelly-kettle-1 Happy Birthday to me! I kept saying how much I liked Kelly Kettle, but did not think there was one in my future. They are not inexpensive. But there it was! Now there I am practicing on my back porch, giving it a go, bringing water to a boil, dumping it down the sink to get any factory finish out of it before we take it for a drive in the mountains. I am a happy girl!

By the way, the zebra pot has nothing to do with Kelly Kettle… it is just the next toy I want to get out into the wild with… Happy trails!
