The Colorado Springs Gazette has a great article on food for backpacking and car camping. They talk about going beyond the basics of dry trail meals and hot dogs and actually making satisfying and even fancy meals while in the field. I have to admit that I’ve always been of the category that food is fuel and kept to very basic stuff while in the woods. Over the past couple of years though I’ve camped with some fantastic camp and campfire cooks and I’m starting to come around to the idea that great food tastes even better when you’re in the woods! Check out the article for a good look at this subject.
