Spoons.

Not for eating with, but for playing.

May not sound like a prep item, but Iím a musician...you can never have too many playing spoons &#128514;

do any of you find stuff in alleys set out for the city trash and scrappers? I have come away with tents some almost unused along with at least one very good "like new" sleeping bag.
Coleman two burners are almost common.South Minneapolis has a lot
of retired folks and a canoes in the back yards tell me i'm
not the only camper around.
