    The groceries might add to the weight going in but if you eat it, you won't have to pack it out. Good topic here.

    Usual dinner: Cut up a small amount of carrots, celery, and broccoli before I leave. Saute up the veggies in the grease pot, add water, spices, and bring to a boil. Pour mixture into a bowl of instant cous cous and add a packet of tuna or can of chicken. Can't forget the king size candy bar for dessert. I'm partial to Milky Way or Zero.

    Breakfast is my favorite meal even though if is pretty basic. There is just something about being in the backcountry in the morning...The light, the temperature, the quiet, etc while I'm easting a bowl of hot oatmeal with banana chips and walnuts thrown in and drinking a cup of coffee.

    We've started scrambling several eggs and then freezing in a big ziploc bag. Ready to go by morning and helps to keep the beer cold in the process!

    Surprising what you can do to make a backcountry trip enjoyable! I find this thread to be very interesting. Thanks to all for the tips. I had a friend that, many years ago, felt that roughing it was staying in a motel with black & white TV!

    Once when I told a member of a committee that I was an advisor to about my upcoming backcountry fishing trip her response was that roughing it to her was a hotel without room service....now how far back will those Domino deliveries go?

    i second the steak and a few charcoal pieces. I also do bratwurst some.

    craisins works well for me as a dessert filler. lots of breakfast bars, beef stick and tuna............ but the most important thing is the bourbon and streaam water........ dont forget the cigars either.

    A good cigar always tastes best while sitting around a campfire.
