Post here your favorite meals when you go camping with your family or friends!
My favorite meal when I'm on trips is ravioli.
I've never been camping and I don't have friends.
Over the last few months I bought myself a tent, sleeping bag and mat, now looking for headlamp and a portable stove. Will be doing motocamping on my own all over the west coast this spring and summer.
I'll probably just eat a lot of instant noodles.
Depends on the trip.
If we're hunting or fishing we bring cans of pork and beans to eat as a punishment if we don't catch or shoot anything. We bring potatoes and foil as well for campfire baked taters.
Hiking trips tend to be Mountain House pouches because they are light.
If it's just a party at the lake, we've got a cottage with a full kitchen and a fridge on the property, along with a grill, so burgers, steaks, brats...
We'll often do a low country boil over the perpetual campfire we keep going at all hours. Or we have the sandwich press things on long handles and will make pizza sandwiches with them. The kids like doing hot dogs over the fire too.
Not saying fishing isn't fun, but it's not the only reason to go camping:
1. Drinking in the woods.
2. Guilt-free breakfast beers.
3. Guilt-free not taking a shower, not doing shit and having breakfast beers all in the same day.
4. Sleeping bags are comfy but I'd be a weirdo if I used one at home.
5. Feel'n hella comfy in my tent on a windy night and pretending I'm in a spaceship.
6. Roasting marshmallows.
7. Pissing region is mostly unrestricted.
8. Making fire is fun.
>not doing shit all day
What kind of watered down redneck Podunk faggot camping is this?
>real camping requires working all fuckin day collecting firewood and arching game for meals and shit
>no time for "breakfast beer"
>you sound like you're fucking 19 years old
bluegill or trout fillets with lemon juice and pepper, cooked in a skillet
deer flesh with salt and pepper, cooked in a skillet
opossum; skinned, parboiled, and roasted over a fire with a little lard and worcestershire sauce
all of these go well with some sweet brambleberries and whatever other edible plants are nearby.
Two different kinds of camping, friend.
Most people are pretty content to go camping at the local campsite and just drink beer and shoot the shit while roasting marshmallows over a fire.
Sounds like a relaxing weekend mayn.
This, and hobo pies of many varieties. Including cheap overdone steak hobo pies.
I'm disappointed that we've made it this far and so far not a single mention of these amazing inventions.
how do you make lasagna when you're camping?
I bring mres when I go camping since you don't have to carry anything else to cook them in and you don't have to worry about shitting in the woods.
Potatoes are always a hit. Throw a couple near the fire when you start drinking. When you're all buzzed up and have the munchies, you have potatoes ready for salt, pepper, cheese and either bbq sauce or hot sauce.
Most of the other chow is burgers and dogs. This isn't a hunting trip - this is a camping trip. Pack as much shit in your truck as you can and enjoy 2-3 days out in the woods, near a swimming hole.
Anything for cold camping (no fire, no stove)? What about cold camping when it's below freezing out (IE all your food freezes?)
I've been having instant oats (pretty good cold), cured meat logs, apples, trail mix, and granola bars. What else would be good? All of the above are freeze-tested. Oatmeal is indestructible.
I tried a tin of dollar store beans n franks, but it was disgusting and sugary. Any sort of bread freezes, as do most fruits and veg. Apples are fine though.
Whenever I'm going to eat outdoors, I bring the grill (unless there will be a grill there) and a cooler full of meat (and booze).
>sausages of all kinds (spicy/horseradish mustard will be used heavily)
I hate marshmallows(s'mores) and hot dogs but I'll bring that shit if there'll be kids present.
>seeds (especially pumpkin seeds)
I've been in freezing temps outdoors with frozen food. I took sealed packages and placed them near my core so body heat would defrost them. After a few hours of walking, the food was edible - cold but edible.
