Paddle Cooking Tripods/Bipods

Previously, I've written about the historical use of paddles lashed together to make cooking tripods as documented in the sketches and artwork by Paul Kane. Here is an example...

Indian Encampment at Georgian Bay
Library and Archives Canada, Acc. No. 1995-215-1
ca. 1850

Recently came across a modern image from the Keswick Canoe Company page which features a cooking rig with four lashed paddles set up on the rocky shoreline...

Not really an option for me as a solo paddler but might be useful to some groups out there.
