Last Night | Montana

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Last night in Montana. Always bittersweet because when you realize it's the end, you don't want it to end. But you do want that shower. And a real bed.

We tried to bake chocolate chip cookies on a cast iron skillet and they burned too quickly on the bottom before cooking the top, so I tried flipping them and ended up with cookie stir fry. Still ate them. Anyone have tips? I'm thinking a lid would have helped greatly.

The next day, we spent the day at Silverwood amusement park and camped in Idaho for our last night. We were all pictured out and didn't take any photos that day. Before heading home the following day, we squeezed in one more amazing campfire shish-kabob lunch to finish off the trip on a good note. Can't wait til next summer! But now, December.

The beer stein, rings, and necklace are all from our sponsor Up Kn√∂rth, an outdoor/lifestyle brand from Vancouver, BC. I love that their jewelry is delicate enough to wear while camping without feeling overbearing.









This Feribault wool blanket and I were basically inseparable for 2 weeks. It was at every campfire and every time I climbed into my sleeping bag. Cozy and beautiful are important qualities in a blanket.

Thanks for the rad t-shirts, Mollyjogger.

  8. tips to cooking cookies over the fire (i would know, i do it oft haha)

    1. you did most everything right, i did the same my first time haha
    2. COVER the top with foil. it makes it more of a convection heating system like an oven, by trapping the heat in. otherwise it just rises out and burns the bottom.
    3. don't put it above big flames, let the fire die down a bit.
    4. it takes... a while, haha. depends. buuuut my trip is definitely foil over the top!

    1. Kylie - Thanks!! I realized pretty quickly that it needed a cover when the bottom began to burn and the top was still uncooked. I was thinking to bring a lid, but foil is a good idea. Thanks!
