Jeeze, you call yourself campers with that lot?
Wheres the sense of adventure in that?
Do you also carry the kitchen sink with you too?


Spend a week with me and I will show you how to camp, no rucksacks filled with gourmet cuisine, just the essentials for real camping. Bring a knife, tent and sleeping bag, thats all you will need. :tu:

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Heck by the time you've done all that the holidays will be over, how about a few cans of Baked beans,a hunk of Bread and Sausages,a few Baking potatoes to chuck into the fires embers, and don't forget to sit on the windward side of the fire.I don't go on 5 star camp cooking holidays.
I can imagine this lot do not take their rubbish with them!

Lol.. Some of us do more real camping at other times of year too. This is just the annual campout event where everybody shares some of the food and beverages we talk about through the year. And yeah, a couple of the guys do break out the full camp kitchens for the event.

And of course we don't leave rubbish after the event. We bag it up and haul it down to the dumpsters provided for this.

My Dad used to take some salt&pepper , an Onion , a stick of butter ,  and a hunk of tinfoil  to wrap around it and  a trout when he got to the river.
  * he'd cook it in some coals   .. i think it was done in 2 or 3 beers.

I like to take nuts and raisins and bread and cheese  ..   sometimes eggs for breakfast ...  and  COFFEE .

When I was 14 my mate and I went camping carrying a tent on our bikes. We pitched the tent in a field and the next morning we discoverd in the next field a campsite full of girl guides, wowee the best camping holiday I've ever had.

Lol, didn't realize my recipe posting would lead to a discussion of real camping. Some of the folks in our group do other camping too, others do not.

It's kind of like this... Some people might have an annual gathering at their home for 12-20 friends to spend a weekend, bring dishes and booze to pass around for the weekend. All of us are kind of foodies- most of us are good cooks, a couple of us are excellent brewers. It's just that instead of doing it at someones house, we do it while out in the woods with tents. It's kind of the last gathering of all of us for the year till next spring since some of us live outside of regular visiting range. Over the last 15 years we've been doing this, it has very much evolved from a pack of hotdogs or someones first attempt at beer to share into way more of a good eats and drinks event.

And for people kind of pooing my camping food... What do you do for camping food? Catch fish or rabbits, do wild eats foraging? Share what you do please. This thread is supposed to be about sharing camping food, not what's really camping or not.

The test of real camping chutzpah is existing for a week on 'Meal, Ready-to-Eat, or MRE's (Meals Rarely Edible - Meals Rejected by Everyone...etc.etc.)! Also fondly known as "Three lies in one".....they're not meals, they're not ready, and you can't eat 'em!   Ah, fond memories!

Thank you Rashore, you said much more kindly what I've been thinking. Camping is well camping. I've done every kind from just a sleeping bag to Motor-home, and I hate the implication that just because a person camps more prepared that they are inconsiderate of the environment or that they leave a bunch of trash behind. I find that kind of blanket statement rather insulting and off the mark. The weekend we went camping is a Music fest on a friends farm. We took away what we brought with us and would do the same regardless where we camped or put garbage in the proper receptacles if provided. And by prepping things in advance I didn't have a lot of garbage and for three days the garbage generated fit in one small Wal'mart grocery bag. We had to prepare food in advance because there is a community kitchen and sharing is encouraged but space is limited. This isn't a small gathering or at a campground but a farm and it kind of irks me to think that anyone would have to justify what they enjoy just because it doesn't meet with someone elses criteria of what 'real camping' is.

Personally, I think roughing it is when there isn't a mint on my pillow so as a joke I brought some mints and put them on my pillow.

Now I could have put forage foods on here but how many people know what to look for or would make themselves ill by choosing the wrong plant?

Mabon.

Holy Moly.... Rashore.... That's stuff looks good, but sheesh, carrying all that stuff would give me a bad back hiking across the street.

Come see me, and I'll teach you how to catch trout with your bare hands, stuff them with wild onions and yummy Sierra puffball mushrooms, salt them from a salt spring, and steam it all in an Indian rhubarb leaf.

You have not tasted anything so delicate and incredible in your life. ;) but I do want to try some if your recipes. The look good.

The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
