General Discussion / Re: Gotta eat, but don't want to cook/boil
« on: May 06, 2011, 10:27:15 am »
We rode across country on the Lewis and Clark and Northern Tier.  The only "cooking" equipment we had was a plug in coil water heater because I love tea and thought a nice cup of tea could warm a day when we had electricity.  We did use it some, but we could have done without it.  We only needed one hot meal a day and carried other food.  Instant oatmeal softens just fine in any temperature of water.  Fruit bars and protein bars work well.  And as others have said, some of these small towns have fantastic breakfasts that are pretty inexpensive.  These were some of our best memories.  We loved talking to the people at the "spit and whittle clubs" we met at these small restaurants in the mornings.  The Adventure Cycling maps are great to show you when you have to stock up a little more on food to carry with you.  These days you can get bag salads, carrots, individual peanut butters and whole wheat flour tortillas that all transport well.  We did have two dehydrated meals with us for emergencies, but did not use them.  This is an adventure after all, it is OK to get out of your comfort zone a bit.
