and a Pop Tart or two

I was kind of meh on Pop Tarts till I discovered toasting them over a stove.  Elevates them to a delicacy.  Like many things, I may be the last person to have figured this out.

In case you have not started by this time, here is some advice. Try, if you can, to keep out of the convenience store trap. I got caught in it many days in my years of bicycle touring. There may be many long extents of roadway where the horribly, malnutritious c-store non-food is the only edible you will get into your muscles and blood stream for days. It is dirt in your gas tank. Some stores do it up for eating more than others, and many have only what would kill you if you were to eat only it for years.  It might be helpful to plan your itinerary around towns that sell fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes and whole grains. Those maps from adventure cycling association would have that ready-made. As for myself, I would get the information online and write it down.
