The 6 Best Backpacking Utensils

Backpacking through the wilderness is among the most exhilarating experiences you can have — but it’s also among the most exhausting. It takes serious effort to trek through the forest for eight hours a day, and when you get to camp, you’re going to be tired — and hungry. That’s why you need to make sure you have the best backpacking utensils. To aid you in your search for the right ones, here’s what to consider:

Size: The types of utensils you need for a backpacking trip are different than what you’d use for the average camping excursion. Mainly, they should be compact, since every item counts when you’re loading a backpack for hiking. That means you may want to consider hybrid items like “sporks,” multi-use tools, or folding utensils that won’t hog room in your bag.

Weight: If you’re going to lug the items on your back all day, you don’t want them to be any heavier than necessary. The weight will largely boils down to the type of material, each of which has own pros and cons.

Material: Plastic utensils are typically the lightest option, and also the most affordable; however, they’re also flimsier and less durable. Plastic also isn’t as heat-resistant as metal, so it’s often useless for stirring boiling water or roasting things over a campfire. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is among the most durable materials, but also the heaviest. Aluminum is similar and tends to be clunky — and as with all of the metal options, you’re going to contend with heat transfer issues (which can lead to burning yourself on the handles since you won’t want to haul along a pot holder). Titanium is typically the best metal option, being the most lightweight; however it’s usually the most expensive, too.

1Best Spork: Most Durable, Made Of Titanium

For folks who love a good all-in-one multi-tool, this versatile backpacking gadget includes a fork, spoon, pocket knife, mini flashlight, corkscrew, bottle opener, and tiny spoon (everything is made of stainless steel). The main spoon and fork are detachable, the unit is easy to clean, and it comes with a durable nylon carrying pouch with a built-in belt loop. Best of all, it’s super compact — and affordable, too. Choose from two colors: red and silver.

KitchenAid boosts social media engagement 85%

Brief:

  • KitchenAid boosted social media engagement with customers by 85% on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, according to a press release from Clarabridge CX Social. The social media management platform helped the appliance brand respond more quickly to customer inquiries about deliveries and repairs.
  • The strategy led to a 90% jump in KitchenAid’s social media fan base and a 143% surge in social interactions in one year. David Moreno, digital marketing specialist at KitchenAid, said Clarabridge CX Social helped to monitor customer feedback trends to improve responses to customers through social media.
  • KitchenAid sought to have a more unified response among various social media channels, which presents a challenge given the variety of platforms and the different ways people use them to interact with companies.

Insight:

KitchenAid is among the brands dedicating more company resources to providing customer care through social media to build more solid relationships with customers and to avoid falling behind the competition. The social media industry started as a way for people to keep in touch with friends and family, but continues to evolve as a way for consumers to follow their favorite brands, ask questions about products and services and to seek helpdesk support. Chatbots, in particular, are expected to play a big role in customer service going forward. 

Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are actively reaching out to businesses with communications platforms that are geared to handle communications with customers and potential clientele. Facebook two years ago added chatbot features to its Messenger chat platform to help automate interactions between businesses and customers. This year, the company updated Messenger with new features such as additional customization for customer chat and a plugin that lets people more easily interact with businesses across their websites and in Messenger on any device without losing conversation history.

As Instagram role continues to grow, more companies will need to have a customer care strategy for the platform. There were 8 million Instagram Business profiles as of last year, enabling users to access contact information and more than 120 million Instagram users had visited a website, got directions, called a business, emailed or direct messaged a business, according to Instagram. 

Twitter, an early leader in social media for customer service, remains an important platform even as its growth has slowed. This year, the company has been focused on streamlining the process for creating bots to handle customer questions. 

Social media platforms aren’t the only way online customers are seeking to engage with a business. Apple has gradually rolled out Business Chat since quietly introducing the service last year to let iPhone users reach customer service, schedule an appointment or make purchases in the Messages app. Google is still trying to develop a more robust chat platform, while search results still mostly depend on providing a way for customers to call a local business.

If you’re bored with your home, simple changes can make a big difference. Start your home renovation journey by deciding whether your rooms need small tweaks or major remodeling.  Here are 10 ideas to get you started.

1. First, no need to reinvent the wheel. Between Houzz, Pinterest and other websites, you’ll find thousands of homes to look at. Don’t just try to copy someone else’s home. Instead, grab ideas here and there to create your own dream home. There are plenty of beautiful homes on the Houston Chronicle’s website — a good place to start. 

From colorfully modern to tastefully rustic, these spaces showcase the best of seaside decor. If you want to capture coastal style, you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.

2. Any interior designer or contractor will tell you that one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to freshen up a room is with paint. Simply freshen up a color that’s faded, switch to a more current palette or go bold for visual interest. The most popular colors among many brands are bright whites that add a crisp, clean look, grays that tap into the pale neutral trend, and greiges — gray-beige blends — that warm up cool gray rooms.

3. You can change the look of a cabinet or dresser with a coat of paint or new hardware. White, Shaker-style cabinets are the most popular selection in new home construction and remodeling projects, but you can save a lot of money by painting natural wood cabinets that you’re tired of. Try white if you want to go with the crowd, but consider a shade of blue, which also is popular in home design. Another inexpensive update to furniture or cabinets is new hardware. Just changing the style of drawer pulls or cabinet knobs can have a big impact. Right now, warm metals like brushed nickel or brass are popular, and you can find some made of slices of agate or chunks of stone, too.

4. One of the most common rooms to remodel is your kitchen. Makeovers tend to take these spaces from too dated or too traditional to a more transitional or contemporary aesthetic. They’re getting brighter and lighter, and cabinets and drawers offer new ways to keep your things organized.

5. If you are going to remodel your kitchen, there are a few things to know about cabinets, including how they’re made and which “extras” are worth the money. Do your homework. 

 6. You’re happiest in your home when the clutter is under control. Keep kitchen drawers and cabinets organized and you’ll navigate meal preparation with less stress.

7. New home construction offers so many possibilities. One popular trend right now is the super pantry — a room that’s more than a closet and less than a second kitchen. You can use it to store small appliances, table linens and pieces you use to entertain. Keep a second refrigerator, oven or even dishwasher in this room so that during parties or holiday dinners you’ve got extra help getting food ready and dishes cleaned up.







8. If your home feels dark and dated, there are plenty of before-and-after transformations to inspire — or at least to help you see the possibilities. One Houston couple took their dated bayside home to a bright white magazine-worthy style.  A city couple changed their beige-centric by aiming for a cooler and brighter color palette.

9. If you don’t have time, energy or a budget for painting or remodeling, remember that small changes can add polish to a room. Updating accessories on a hall table, in kitchen cabinets or even a tight edit to bookshelves can make things feel less cluttered.

10. Temperatures are already soaring, but brave Houstonians don’t let that stop them from going outdoors. If you’ve got a cool pool or fun patio, use it. Great new products are available to help you keep it looking nice and make it more comfortable, too.
