Interesting. I'm going to have to look into those.

Thanks for posting.

The big meal for me is breakfast. I make my own oatmeal mix; for 2 mornings I mix one pack of Trader Joes Apple & Cinn., a handful of dried cranberries, banana chips, quaker oats 1 min. oatmeal (no sugar),and cream of wheat, in a ziplock bag. This mix stays with ya for several hours.

hey you know, i'd forgotten about that! used to be dinner on the way back from the pub, a whole chicken, bottle of wine, loaf of bread and american style cheese spread/slices. dinner for 1x drunk student less than 10 and often a lot less because late at night theyre selling off the days deli and bakery stuff. substitute the chicken for a bucket of curry, pies, sausage, hocks, bacon joints, whatever was left.

(depending on amount of beer drunk, often EVERYTHING that was left! those were the days....)

It's never been an issue traveling by motorcycle no matter how remote. Backpacking, kayaking, & bicycle touring, yes, but not motorcycle traveling. Motorcycles need gas. Gas outlets generally have some kind of food for sale or are located in some small town or village.

You may have trouble finding fresh vegetables or steaks, and you might eat Raman or mac and cheese, but you won't go hungry.

At the very worst you might miss a meal. That wouldn't hurt most of us. Water is much more important.

It's true, but it does come up. Two instances come to mind during my travels, both times in Texas.

I was heading into Big Bend National Park. According to Wikipedia, "Big Bend is one of the largest, most remote, and least-visited national parks in the lower 48 United States." I was planning to stay a few days. Sure, there's a camp store in the park, and a gas station with a few snacks. And there's even a restaurant. But if you want to eat right and not pay a bundle, one has to bring in his own food. I stopped at the grocery store beforehand and loaded up.

Later the same trip, I spent a couple days at Chinati Hot Springs. It's not all that remote. I suppose you could find a store within 15 or 20 miles of the place, and if you were in dire need, I'm sure the caretakers who live on the property would feed you. The point is, no food is available, and if you want to spend a couple days there, and you want to enjoy yourself, you ought to carry some food you can prepare while you're there.

I agree that the vast majority of the time food won't be a problem... But I was asking the question for the few times where food won't be readily available for a few days, or when I wouldn't want to rely on eating what food I could find at a gas station.

I carry a few "bird shot" rounds for whichever pistol I have with me at the time. You would not believe how good fresh quail or doves taste when you ran out or forgotten a bag of food you had intended to bring with you!

How do you heat them? Instructions on the package are for microwave. Do you boil the bag or put the contents into a saucepan or what?

contents of one can
buy at Sam's wholesale .. precooked bacon, excellent quality for $9 for 20oz ... much better than $19 for 9oz. got 6-8 bags on hand at any given time for emergency rations. spinkle on salads or fried potatoes or snak or whatever to keep bacon in rotation ... mmmm Good..

don't know what claimed shelf life is .. but have used packages 2-3 years old with little to no degradation of quality.

If camping I take fishing gear with me and try to eat a fresh meal or two. Otherwise I usually take tuna snacks, cans of sardines, and some fruit.

One thing I always take is brown basmati rice and tahini to top it.

Another one of my favorites is tamari almonds. Make them yourself by spreading raw almonds on a baking sheet, baking at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes (don't over do it), put a couple ounces of tamari in a bowl, dump in the hot almonds and mix around so all the almonds are coated, put almonds back on baking sheet to cool. Great filling healthy snack.
