Outdoor cooking is a crux of the outdoor experience. Everybody loves the little smiles and smiles that are created when couples eat and thoroughly enjoy each other’s company outdoors. Cooking outdoors is not limited to burger-jumping, salt-water fishing re-enactors but moreover to cooking with delicious pans and cookware.
Outdoor cooking created outdoor cooking utensils to suit cooking in the outdoors. In fact, some outdoor kitchens have paintings on their walls– indication of their being historic and primeval. In fact, the earliest form of outdoor cooking may be dated back to the nomadic settlements in Mesopotamia.Chinese merchants joined the western merchants to establish trade routes in Africa, Indian and Middle Eastern regions. These Chinese contributed a lot to the development of towns and cities, as well as the elaborate thatotide palaces and temple structures of the period.
Dating back to the beginning of time, when the first permanent settlements appear, people have been creating and using outdoor cooking equipment and appliances. The camping of 1844 Henry Church, for example, changed the way food was cooked and transported, specifically by introducing a portable water heater. Even thousand of years ago, people made food from now whats in season. Food items were wrapped in a foil and cooked over a fire. Usually, fire is a necessity of life. It was also the primary source of cooking and heating. Outdoor cooking however, had a few innovations by the Cherokee as they were the first campers to bring indoors, wood burning stoves and kerosene lamps as the primary source of light.
You can think of the Cherokee as being ahead of their time, therefore it is not surprising that they had cookware which was already mentioned in the records of the ancient Greeks. The Cherokee, since time immemorial have been the utmost Scientists and inventors of the human race. Aside from having superior knowledge of how to build up houses, they were avid users of tents as they could live indoors and campers were their friends. Apart from their magnificent tombs and museums, the Cherokee also have a number of fabulous resorts and restaurants.
Every part of the inhabitation of the Cherokee has a piece of their history narrating their early lives. Apart from their importance in the aboriginal community, the Cheyenne and the Crow Indians, the Cherokee nation is one of the most respected and talked aboutNative American groupings.
Probably the most well known of the Cherokee is the late Chief William C. “Pew” Crow, who founded the Cheyenne Nation in the late 1800’s and who was the principle leader of the fight to keep the government from taking over the land in the late 1800’s. Preparing the troops for the winter months ahead, the Crow Clan moved to the Southeast in 1828 and joined with the Cheyenne and U.S. Marshals in the Gainesville, Georgia area. There they set up a system of stations across the area and prepared themselves for the winter.
The Cheyenne and the Crow Indians had settlements in the mountains between Arizona and Nevada, where they operated a network of trails and roads that joined together to form the Cheyenne Mountain path, which was used by the pilgrims who traveled down the trail to be able to reach Heaven. The path forms what is today the Cheyenne Mountain National Battlefield Park. Today the park is a haven for hikers and equestrians who are actively involved in national park preservation.
Having walked on the trail myself, in the days that I was alive, I can firsthand report that it is an accomplishment, but one that carries a little more weight than does most of our walking. Our feet, apart from carrying a heavy load of supplies, also have to withstand the rigors of rocky and uneven terrain, often creating beats. They need to be protected carefully, each one, and each one should be tried out in the store before any purchase is made.
We need to be realistic. We only get a few seconds at the top of a mountain, but the majority of our time is eaten up with climbing. We can’t afford to waste a single second on the way down, so we must be prepared for all eventualities.
Consider also that the Cheyenne Mountain path is often used by those traveling to remote and isolated locations, so you may not have to do it, but if you do, you won’t be leading the way. Those who lead the way will be well-protected and Everglades visitors will be “off the path.” As we know, it is the swamp that backs up and protects us, not the path.
Backpacking is a unique opportunity, the pursuit of Becoming One With Nature. What a feeling it gives one. I hope you find it just the way I did.
