"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Scrubbing Dutch Ovens

The project:
Help clean up after a Dutch Oven breakfast.

15-20 minutes

Why bother?
During a weekend campout, our hostess made breakfast for some 50 people sharing this rally experience. Afterward, there were eight Dutch ovens in need of cleaning. My stomach was blissfully full, and my hands were free.

Worth it?
Yes. Cleaning a Dutch oven sounds like a big chore, but when well seasoned and used properly it's really not a big deal. Still, there weren't many of folks stepping up to the task. Volunteering was another way to give thanks for a meal well prepared and generously served.

  1. Any kind of cleaning is a charitable deed in my books! Keep up the good work!
