Snow Camping Boot Warmer Oatmeal.
Double line the inside of your “chilled by the winter night” winter boots with gallon size heavy duty zip lock bags.
Once inserted deep into you boots, the zip lock bags need to exceed the height of your boots, and then some.
On the side, add 1 cup of Instant Oatmeal, Walnuts, Raisins & Flaxseed to a backpacking bowl, of which has a lid.
Bring at least 2 cups of water to a boil on your gas stove.
Carefully, pour at least 1 cup of boiling water into each of the double lined heavy duty zip lock bags. Zip the bag seals tightly shut.
Set the boots aside from your active zone, but within easy reach.
Allow a few minutes for your boots to thaw and warm up.
Carefully pull the inner lining bags of hot water out of your boots (without spilling water back inside your boots), leaving the outer layer bags inside your boots, and add the hot water to your awaiting oatmeal mix bowl.
Stir the oatmeal, until throughly mixed and put the lid on the bowl.
Allow the oatmeal mix to hydrate for a minute or so before chowing it down.
With practice, a snow camper can perform this task flawlessly, while still in his/her sleeping bag, eagerly preparing the hearty breakfast meal, just outside the tent door.
Pull out the remaining zip lock bags from your boots, put on a pair of clean dry socks, your warmed boots, wash out your bowl with the fresh fallen snow, and your ready to have a great day, trekking across the snow covered countryside, to your next destination.
