Do you put your bacon in the fridge/cooler after you pre-cook your bacon?



We put it in plastic bags in our ice chest, but I don't think you would need to. Costco sells bacon bits in bags that sit out at room temp for months. :D

When we lived in NC and saw how they cured a VA cured ham, we've never been concerned about smoked meat since. They left it hang on the porch in the heat, flys and all. shudder. Indians didn't have refrigeration and stored smoked meat year round.

Those Indians also had a life expectancy of like 30.
Basic b/e analysis:
2005 $243K
06 $855K
07 $1.0M
08 $1.1M
09 $0
10 $1.1M
11 $1.2M
12 $1.2M
That’s $6.8M that thousands of volunteers deserve to know about. Capitalism is alive at BM. Tickets are the commodity. Others have estimated higher profits.

Of course you will.

Another thing I've learned over the years- Small cans or cups of fruit cocktail, pineapple, pears, etc. don't go bad out there, are easy to consume & carry in your playa bag, and boost the vitamins to keep you feeling better. I'm making homemade smoothies and freezing them in single packs for OregonRed & I this year.

Those little fruit cups are extra delicious when chilled.

Yep. The plastic container ones are cheap at places like Costco. I have always liked to bury them deep in the cooler and on a hot afternoon randomly launch cold fruit cups at passer bys.


OH!

Pudding cups are awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwsome after they have been nestled deep in the cold depths of the cooler.

You have to ignore them for a day or two for the best effect.

Bagels with honey and peanut butter.

Canned chicken and taco seasoning spread over tortillas/flat bread.

Raisins and granola bars!


If you're a veg...

I dunno bring a few cans of peaches or something.

The bowl of noodle soups that you just add water to are even better and more hearty of a dinner if you add about 1/2 box of cous cous to it. Really hits the spot.

That's a good idea. Noodles have useful fat and salt, but could use some padding. Couscous would add a little bit of protein (3.5g per 1/2 cup, or so I google) and is a complex carb, so it burns slower than pasta itself, and would stretch the pasta's ability to keep you going.

A can of tuna or chicken works really well in those too for a protein boost.

I made sure to bring a lot of things I liked to drink. The shelf stable Horizon chocolate milks were so good cold in the afternoon! Seltzer or sparkling water for a change. I cooked homemade food and froze it; lasagna, beef stew, etc. I put it in ziploc bags in single serving portions. You can heat the food by putting the bag in boiling water. I am somewhat of a foodie in the default world though, the effort is not for everyone out there.

I too was surprised how my appetite was so much lighter when I was out there. I find that I eat a hearty breakfast and then a lunch/dinner meal in late afternoon or early evening. I liked a lot of snack food too for in between times. Tortilla chips and salsa, applesauce, pudding cups, fruit cups, candy, mmmm pickles. I almost forgot salt and vinegar chips! The Indian boil in the bag meals from Trader Joe's are satisfying and there is rice that is already cooked from there too. I haven't before, but I think I will make pancakes one day for breakfast. I also bring Cliff Builder bars that have 20 grams of protein, taste pretty decent, and do fill you up. I also recommend trying this stuff at home so you know what you like. I brought a ton of food home last year, and probably will again this year.

I bring this grape powder called Replenisher I think that you mix with water. It tastes really good, is a change from plain water, and keeps your electrolytes up.

It was my way of fixing the really salty broth of the noodles - I mean I love salt, but I just had a hard time with the last 2 or 3 swallows and I found putting the Couscous in really made the salty part MUCH better. -AND of course there is the bonus of not having to dirty up and extra dish to make the Couscous b/c you just pour it in with the soup. *oh and you can add 1/2 the spice packet of the Couscous if you want, I usually do and have found that I like the spices of the Couscous much better than the soup and only add 1/2 of the soup spice*

Cheers!

I always bring military MREs as a backup, no matter what food experiment I have planned.

Yup. I find that reading the back of the MRE makes whatever it is I am eating much more palatable.
