Sorry, but as I have stated before: I have not had TV for 8 months and I have no friends(nearby) so y'all are my victims... HA!
Though I plan to repay you with posts and trail reports from the towns and intenet cafes along the PCT this summer so it's not a total one sided thing.
First let me tell you where I am at with this whole 5 months of food thing.
I have been collecting supplies (and trying them each night) for this "little" thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail for many weeks now.
Yet, until tonight I had not actually begun to consolidate them into indiviual resupply boxes.. OMG! 18-12"X12"X5" boxes loaded with crap! And that ain't all of it yet. I intend to buy the other half of my comestibles from the trail towns along the way. I figure they must be hurting as much or worse than we are here in Santa Cruz(Los Gatos Hills). And I want to remain flexible 'cause I just know that whole grain spaghetti is gonna get real old by the half way point (Drakesbad Guest Ranch by the way.. mile 1353.3). I have already been living off my trail food for the last month and sleeping in the yard trying out shelters and such.. is it April yet?!
I guess the point of all this rambling is: Does anyone have any cool trail recipies?
I have mixed up milkshakes with milk powder, pudding mix and ovaltine.. shaken in a tupperware bowl and they are to die for.. but I am easily impressed.
Does anyone have any one-pan wonders I should try? I sure appreciate any advice and you can bet I will give it a try immediately, as I have already burned more denatured alcohol here while home cookin' up stuff on the Trangia than I planned for the whole trip.
My requirements are:
It must cook in a one liter pot; water just to a boil or two minutes beyond boil.. no longer. & It must be tasty.(Remember: I am the guy that eats.. uh ate.. milkbone dog biscuits for trailsnacks (once!)so I am not too hard to please.. just looking for variety).
Hey! Thanks in advance for any replies.. I know I seem to be a strange cat, but very soon(APRIL 16) I will be a VERY hungry strange cat. And I need to mix up the friskies so I don't go nuts(more nuts?).
You can make more money, but you can't make more time.
