We love popcorn almost as much as a fresh pair of hiking socks!

Easy Backpacking Stove Popcorn Recipe | CloudLine Apparel

Popcorn is one of the easiest snacks to make when backpacking and hiking. If you have a backpacking stove and a pot, the only ingredients you need are popcorn, oil, and salt.

 

 

Cook Time: About 3 minutes

Ingredients 

  1. Popcorn kernels
  2. Oil (we recommend coconut oil when backpacking)
  3. Salt of other preferred seasoning

Tools

  1. Stove (we used a Jetboil Minimo)
  2. Pot with lid
  3. Spoon

Directions

  1. Add about a tbsp of oil to the pot
  2. Pour in a single layer of kernels (about 1/4 - 1/2 cup depending on pot size)
  3. Place lid on pot and set stove to medium low
  4. Shake pot as kernels pop. There will be plenty of steam.
  5. When popping slows turn off stove
  6. Remove lid with caution to avoid remaining steam and flying kernels
  7. Season as desired

How to Plan the Perfect Day of Snowshoeing

by Erin Gautier January 04, 2019

Snowshoeing is an activity that can open your eyes to breathtaking new dimensions and faces of nature. Not only is it a fun and achievable goal to help you get outside during the winter, but it is an experience unlike any other that is sure to make an impression.

Though it can be overwhelming to think about planning a beginner trip in the winter weather, anyone can take a snowshoeing trip with the right preparation and mindset. For me, a cold-natured summer hiker, snowshoeing offers confidence in my own abilities and an outlet to enjoy the winter that I have grown to anticipate and love.

How to Cut Your Christmas Tree in a National Forest
How to Cut Your Christmas Tree in a National Forest

by Erin Gautier December 19, 2018

My favorite family Christmas tradition has always been driving up into the mountains and cutting our own Christmas tree. We grew to perfect the process, carefully judging potential trees for our own living room and for the growing number of family members who began to ask for real trees, too. Grandma likes her tree not too full, but Nana likes it when the branches droop, like trees on vintage postcards. Each year, we would cut a little bit off of the trunk and add it to our quirky collection.

Whitney Thomas Interview: Embracing Freedom in the Outdoors

by Erin Gautier December 05, 2018

Though you probably do not know her name, Whitney Thomas is a true outdoorswoman.

When I set out to interview her about women in the outdoors, I had no idea how strikingly real and powerful her insights would be. Instead of lingering on the lack of quality, technical women’s gear (and how so much of it is pink) or on the gender gap in guiding, Whitney took time to talk over why she loves the outdoors, and what all it has offered her.
