Waiting for the Blood

Hey guys, first time posting here, but been a stalker for a long time. I'm going to be embarking on my longest ride yet in less than a week. I live in the beautiful City of Savannah, and I plan to take a 4 day trip to Blood Mountain. I know, it's definitely no where close to how rough and tough you guys are.

So as other's have done, I'm going to report the whole thing, from planning to falling in my warm bed after a good trip.

To give you some background on me, I will be riding a '02 Triumph Speed Triple 955i, which is basically stock. I am an Eagle Scout with 11 years of serious camping experience. Gear wise for me is listed below.
-Teknic Sprint Jacket
-Tourmaster Rain pants
-Tourmaster soft saddle bags
-Northface expedition duffle (water resistant)
-Shoei RF1100
-Sena SMH10
-Alpinestars SMX-5 boots
-Eureka Apex 2XT (tent)
-and the list goes on.

The Plan
To take the 5.5+ hour ride to Blood Mountain and camp at Vogel State Park. I will be leaving on the 16th of this month and returning the 19th. It's a short trip, but I want to be back for St. Patty's day.

As this week and the next goes by I'll photograph as things happen.

I do have a question though, how would you all pack food for a short trip like this? I have a Jet Boil stove and it seems there is a firepit with a grate at the campsite.
