    When I go out for more than a day, my wife makes a bunch of burritos. Some for breakfast, some for lunch/dinner. They have different stuff in them. She then freezes them untill we leave. That way you can heat em up on the grill when ready to eat. As far as eating on the trail, pre cooked hamburgers. I prefer them to sandwiches.

    lots of stuff...

    I'd bring non-perishable stuff like peanut butter and mashmallow,and crackers,chips,and lots of BEER!!!..and water,jerky,slim-jims,MORE BEER,and maybe some Jack Daniels or Souther Comfort in case anyone gets injured and needs sterilization..strictly for medicinal purposes! :D ...I dont drink much beer,but I've found its better than cash if your in a bind,stuck in a mud pit or ditch--many people are much more willing to help in exchange for beer than money in some cases.. :D :crazy: cheaper than AAA too!.. :laugh:

    In the past I always took jerky, or dry sausage, depending on what we made more of that year etc .. or what was left by that time of year. The usual sandwich fixin's .. soda's & water & juice.

    For our wheelin/camping trips to the Nueces river, I did the same, but usually tried to take something nice for at least one evening meal. Usually steaks or fajitas or something like that. But, we always went to my buddy's relatives land right on the river.. so I knew there was a good expanded metal grill to cook it on.

    On the trail we bring a cooler with fixin's for sammichs (hamburger buns work very good for bread) fruit, chips, and of course Jerky.

    Also, 1 gal of water per person per day. Don't even think about going with less.

    My camping and wheeling pack ups are very different.

    If its a camping trip or I have a "base camp" to go back to I pack a wide variety of food, just like you wold do at home.

    Warm weather wheeling-sandwiches, burritos, Pringles (they don't get crushed as easily), Little Debbie's, Gatorade, water, and Coke.

    Cold weather wheeling-take the above list and add a can of Chunky soup, then trade the sandwiches for burgers or sausages and add a small stove to cook them on.

    I always keep some non perishables & an extra gal of water in my pack up box for the "just in case".

    One last thing- something to clean your hands with.

    One guy I've wheeled with no longer brings food the summertime, only ice-cream. he's got a yellow D90 w/ an ARB fridge/freezer. His nickname is "The Ice-Cream Man (shocking). He gives out icecream all day. Everyone makes sure he well feed. I guarantee he eats better than anyone else on the trail ride because he gets a little from everyone he hooked up during the day.
