Outdoor Mini Kitchen – Summer 2016 Adventure Look Back

A Facebook Memory popped up the other day of my Teardrop Back Hatch kitchen –  it was finally completed and ready for my #BMXGypsy Adventure that would begin in 13 days.  As the 1 year anniversary of my summer of freedom draws closer, it has been on my mind a lot, so over the next 4 months, I will be looking back on my adventure and sharing my insights and struggles and joys!

One five foot by 18 inch kitchen (sink doubles as a washroom sink) fully outfitted with

  • propane stove
  • hand pump sink (with 5 gallon Home Depot buckets for water tanks)
  • pantry (see open area under stove – later had a plastic basket for food storage)
  • 3 cups, 4 plates, 4 bowls, 4 forks, 4 spoons, 4 knives
  • 3 pots/pans
  • 1 kettle, 1 hand crank coffee grinder, 1 french press
  • assortment of cooking utensils
  • assortment of spices
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • mirror on extendable arm
  • citronella candle
  • paper towels, foil, zip-lock bags
  • hand soap in a pump
  • toothbrush and toothpaste

That’s all that I needed to survive.. 1 year later I have 3 kitchens (my house kitchen that is crammed with stuff – half of which I don’t use, my teardrop kitchen – same as above, and my new Trailer kitchen that is outfitted with mostly just essentials). May need to reduce the amount of stuff I have again as it just ties me down.
