12/30/2011 The Lunch


I have a cookstove. It is a quality Primus Multifuel expedition stove. It is supposed to run on unleaded gasoline, and it does fire up. But it burns with a sooty yellow flame that causes my pot to get a greasy sooty coating making it difficult to clean with camping facilities. So I have not been using it.

But two days with no hot meals leaves me hungry and a little fatigued. So I resolve to eat lunch out at the first restaurant I come to after 12:00. The restaurant (12:06) has no vegetarian plates of the day, so I get duck. It is a gut buster of a meal, a real bloater, just what I need. Think I’ll skip dinner tonight.
