Every great story starts with an adventure!
Our adventure began with a photographic journey with two friends – Jeep Kitchen Founder Alan Smith and his close friend, and fellow adventurer, David DuChemin, during an expedition to Inuvik, at the Arctic Circle.
Over the course of six weeks they would travel through British Columbia, over the chilly waters of the Inside Passage, up through Whitehorse and Dawson City, and finally up the traitorous shale laden Dempster Highway to one the most beautiful parks in all of rugged Canada, Tombstone Territorial Park.
A few daily rituals occur during a trip. Stopping every few feet for photographs on a good day. Stopping for a bathroom break and setting up camp in the pathway of river or (as it turns out) a hunting trail for wolves running down elk. And one particular reoccurrence at -15 Celsius (5 Fahrenheit) in the morning, and during chilly day-lit hours, was setting up and preparing warm meals.
After returning home to think about all his future trips with family and the many times he had frozen hands waiting for food or while loading and unloading his fridge and stove Alan started to think about how to first, make something to eat quicker, and then to create a system to better maximize the storage space so that all the gear was easier to get at and took far less effort to re-pack.
That is when the first wooden one level “proto-type” was created. From this one simple solution came a bigger vision and one that could help his family and other world wide adventures improve on the usage of space and ease of setting up for meal time.
Now over three years and six proto-types have passed since that memorable journey and today we prove solutions that serve all sorts of flatbed vehicles, adventurers, campers, and out-door-enthusiasts seeking to spend more time on their past-time than loading their kitchen and coolers from truck to picnic table – now it’s all in one!
