Cooking for the backpacker, boater and RV camper who is not satisfied with traditional bland camp cuisine.
When living a no-frills life on the trail, camp meals have traditionally been planned based largely on weight of ingredients and ease of preparation. Those are important considerations, of course, especially if you are backpacking. But taste is important, too. With very little extra effort or additional carrying weight you can prepare tasty, easy-to-prepare meals. Check out Campsite Gourmet, by Steve Liddick. The 76-page book is more than just recipes. It also offers tips to make the outdoor experience more enjoyable.
A day-to-day job can sap the life out of you. Nothing replenishes the spirit more than a change of scenery. Get out on the trail. Find a hike that dramatically contrasts with what you do every day. It will give you a new perspective and make returning to the routine much easier.
