I have 3 settings of some kind of plastic dinnerware, as well as my 6 bay dinner tray for Pot Lucks, however when dry camping I tend to use more paper to conserve water (at least that is the excuse I use - I don't enjoy doing dishes in the small sink!)

And Cypherian - I have used my share of C4 to start fires & heat "C's", but I think they might frown on one having possession of the stuff these days!

LOL yes C4 burns complete even the VOCs it gives off (JUST DO NOT STOMP ON IT WHILE IT IS BURNING) oh and umm the State/Fed Leo's may not appreciate you having it in your possession. Hexamine and trioxane tablets are made for camping and burn complete though the hex does give off an odor and if your sensitive to formaldehyde you would not want to use it the pans used sometimes get sticky soot on them. However your using it to start a fire not cook on in the case of the current discussion. The cotton ball and Vaseline the cotton would the Vaseline probably not much more emissions then a small amount of lighter fluid. Dryer lint well if it is cotton it is pretty safe for the environment. If you wanted reusable you could use a 9 volt battery and some steel wool the steel wool burns complete giving off 02 and several other naturally occurring gasses. By far I would suggest they are all better for the environment then burning wax/plasticized paper plates and cups .

Well there is that lol :} I am sure a lot of folks from a lot of 3 letter agencies would not be happy if some one not licensed had it . Never got the hang of doing it with det cord though, know some folks who could do amazing things with that stuff. IE Make Big things small and small things disappear :}

Can you still get paper plates that don't have some sort of coating? I would think they would be useless with most food.

Yes you can Brian however, you wouldn't want to set the plate on you knee while dining. Or those double knit trousers will never be the same.

There is a Corelle outlet store in Centralia, WA just south of you. They sell a lot of single pieces too so you can get only what you need. Lots of patterns available too. Might be worth the time to see if they have something you want.
