Having to haul most of your food home is a proud Burner tradition. Between the food I ate on shift, and the Meet & Greet, a box of coconut water thrown at me as a gift, and the largesse of my friends Motz and Lydia, plus
my usual overpacking, I ate perhaps 25% of my food this year; a new low. Usually I eat 30-40% of it. Same with the beverages. Why do I bring so many beverages?
Oh, well. It's fun to be able to offer a selection.
I have two cans of Underwood devilled chicken in my filing cabinet at work right now, as well as some vacuum-sealed Indian food from Trader Joe's (those are good in tortillas). I spend September through April of every year slowly incorporating my Burn food into real life.
This is why I don't buy "camping" food, per se. Just preserved food that I'll actually eat.
Very true! I live on the east coast, but I know the mixers/booze/food that is unopened gets consumed at later times by folks in our camp. I went to the house for a nap after leaving the playa and the kitchen island was full of dusty snacking options.
I keep it simple with Ravioli as a staple item. I like mandarin oranges so I grab some of those fruit cups. Crackers, trail mix, bacon and pickles are other staple items... Dry cereal (cinnamon toast crunch) is great all times of day.
