Coffee

Rule one. Anyone who brings milk or creamer out camping really ought to be whipped. We’re sure Kit Carson drank his coffee black. What’s your problem?

Dried Fruit

It’s a good idea to keep fruit coming, and dried is best for camping. Even if it can get kind of gummy in your teeth.

Grilled Fish

You caught it. Know how to grill it. What, you’re gonna mount a stuffed trout on the rec room wall? Fire it up. But be the master at the grill you were with bait and tackle.

Jerky

It’s portable, it’s meat and it’s all cowboy. You can make like you’re tough while stuffing your face.

Water

Do we even have to? Really?

Carrots

You want food that’s not just something to eat but something to do. That’s carrots. Plus, healthy. We see hummus on the table. That’s great, too.

Chili

Let’s face it, it’s heavy and takes up space. Chili might not be the thing if you’re not bringing a vehicle or mule. But it’s camping. And it’s chili. Have some heart.

Hard, Hearty Bread

This is NATURE dammit. It’s not the place for that dull supermarket white bread. Everything you pack has to carry its own heft – in taste, nutrition and texture.

Roasted Chicken

It’s dinner-time, the fire’s going, and it’s time for a feast. Also, it’s the first night out, and you haven’t caught or shot anything yet.

Honey

It doesn’t go bad, it’s sweet and it goes on anything. It’s the thing most everything else needs. Tip: put some in your coffee cup before pouring.

Trail Mix

Again, you need something portable. The combination of nutty, crunchy and sweet is great for hiking. As long as you can still hear that grizzly behind you.

Alcohol

Because you can’t have a proper camping accident without alcohol.
