I heard a camper say the other day..."living on the road is just a steady diet of cheese and meat and food that will still be edible when I'm dead!"
Well yes and no, obviously there are great options to carry whatever you want, but when you are going to be off grid for more than a few days and the fresh food has gone, it time to eat less desirable options.
I just returned from a motopacking trip around some of the lesser visited points of the Grand Canyon, and I knew there would be days where good food would not be an option.
So what did I choose to bring?
I had some Mountain House meals laying around and remembering what that other camper said I looked at the use by date, yikes!
Sure that can't be good for you and it tastes like warm styrofoam with a seasoning full of things that are unpronounceable, using a lot of E's
Obviously staying out for days on end it has to have a decent pack size, forgot to mention I'm on a motorcycle so extra space is at a premium.
I had a walk around the supermarket before heading to the ditch, knowing I would have no choice but to eat somewhat dried food/ goods with lots of preservatives, but could I find something a little tastier that Mountain House and also not pay $8 for what is listed as two servings but is bearly one meal?
What would be going in your pack?
