I am so anxious to get back out there under the stars again. My family’s season opening trip to Western North Carolina did nothing to soothe the camping beast inside of me–instead, it only made me hungry for more. Unfortunately our next trip to Westchester PA is still three weeks away.
So when my set of Rolla Roaster camping forks arrived from L..L Bean on the front porch it felt like my destiny was unfolding before me like a whole wheat hot dog bun. I rummaged through the refrigerator and found a pack of organic weenies and headed into the backyard to roast one up. There was only one small problem with my spontaneous weenie roast. I was completely alone–no friends or family in sight. There was no one to share the sizzle with!
My wife had left for book club and the campers were snoozing away in their cribs. Something didn’t feel right. I faintly remembered reading a maxim from the Trailer Life Directory that commanded, “though shalt not have a weenie roast alone,” but I opened up my package of camping forks and soldiered on anyway. My evening was guaranteed to be emotionally unsatisfying but I wanted to test the product out and get a short review posted for our readers.
So here it is: The Rolla Roasters worked great. They have a telescoping fork that extends out over three feet and they have a knob that allows you to rotate your wiener or marshmallow over the fire. Pure genius! I only stuck one weiner on the end of the fork and I think that sticking two there would definitely cause it to bend. But you could easily fit two marshmellows on each prong.
L.L. Bean sells themhereand Rolla Roaster sells them directly from their sitehere. The world’s most glamourous and powerful people are using these camping forks–for proof please click here! If you want to impress your fellow campers and be the talk of the campground then they are a must have.
These solidly built camping forks are sold in packs of two for a good price, and they are sold in packs of two for a good reason…. I wholeheartedly recommend them for your next family campfire.
