Welcome to my Camp Kitchen FatMax!
A car can only fit so many Rubbermaids and once at your campsite that gear still requires organizing. I have been looking into options for creating a portable camp kitchen that can handle all of my gear and kitchen supplies (not including food). This camp kitchen wish list had a few essential requirements:
1. it must be portable and easily pack in the car,
2. it must be light enough that I can lift it myself,
3. it must easily pack away at night for bear proofing,
4. it must have good organizational potential.
I had been researching chuckboxes online (hello Pinterest!) but was not able to settle on one style that fit all the aspects of my wish list. I started thinking outside of the literal box. Pregnancy brain and all, this brought me to the idea of using a rolling toolbox. After some research, recon, and financial timing I welcomed the Stanley FatMax into my camp life. I am excited about this new addition.
The FatMax has three storage areas of varying sizes and opens so that you can access all compartments easily at one time. The large area on the bottom fits my important larger kitchen gear (Biolite Stove, Biolite Grill, MSR Stove, cutting boards, water jug, mallet, ax, and pot set). The middle area is sectioned off (you can arrange the size of the sections to your personal preference) and it stores my cutlery, cooking utensils, knives, coffee making supplies, dish duty items, matches, and flashlights. Finally, the top compartment holds dishware, mugs, and anything extra. The entire unit can be locked up with a single lock loop (lock not provided) as needed. Your FatMax will easily wiz around basecamp with you on it's two wheels with it's adjustable handle (think airport suitcase style).
Easily unfold FatMax with one hand and your camp kitchen is ready for meal prep!
Trusty FatMax keeps many precious gear essentials safe, sound, and organized.
Check out the growing baby bump! Little B is already helping me prep for our camping adventures this summer. Having FatMax around will make camping meal prep with a newborn a breeze.
I love the fact that FatMax can stand up on its own when fully open. Its super stable and easy to manipulate. This quality was the driving force behind my final decision to welcome FatMax into my camp club.
The organizational options make gear checking and spice rack reviewing an easy task.
Everything and the kitchen sink! ;)
Just another day at the weekend office. Adventure planning and meal prepping. Thankful for my new partner in camp kitchen creation.
Oh, and when you need to take a rest its a great stool!
