    Yes, that is the idea anyways.. Car camp between destinations, and once I get somewhere awesome settle down for a couple days and explore it myself.

    Camping food depends more on individual tastes. Fish ? I like trout but some people don't. The good thing about fishing near your camping spot is you have a food source at your location.

    I camped a lot with my cousins and they would bring everything with them except the kitchen sink. Things like coffee table sized coolers packed down with ice,beer, ground chuck for grilled hamburgers,sometimes t-bone steaks, buns , potatoes and tinfoil for baking them on hot coals, condiments to go along with it, canned goods of various vegetables with pots to heat them in over a grill.

    Funny thing is, they would have all of these things and sit back by the campfire proclaiming how badass they were from "roughing it".

    Every camping spot I've ever camped at , a vehicle was always within eyesight and a short walk away to get whatever was needed. The longest I ever camped was 3 weeks at a lake. There were hot showers on site and every camping lot had a grill anchored into the ground with an electrical outlet on each lot and this was at Lake Tobesofkee in GA.

    Location also determines your "camping experience"

    After thinking this much about camping I'm wanting to grill something.
    I could go for grilled food right now.. I'd probably appreciate a hot-shower-spot with electricity for car-camping, but I'll also be exploring to places where there is literally nothing.
    @Usehername the frozen-to-thaw idea is a pretty good one, I think they'd probably keep a long time especially in the shade.

    I was searching for new ideas for camping and came across the "Tentsile Unique Camping Shelter". Who ever thought up this is a genius. It's sold only in England and I couldn't find a price, I think you have to email them to get the price on their website. Suspended in the air by 3 anchor points and with a rope ladder to get into it, it keeps you off the wet cold ground, out of reach from anyone or anything. That's an awesome tent design. It comes in 3 models, for 2 people , 3-4 people , 5-8 people.

    I posted this in @JAVO's thread the other day, but I LOVE this food for backpacking trips... all dehydrated, nutritious, filling, flavorful.

    Im always a bit wary of pre-made foods, since MREs and their preservatives hurt my stomach so much... but if you're saying they taste great and are pretty fresh I may have to try these out in the neat future and see what I think.

    MRE stands for Meals Really for Enemy.

    I've tried MRE's and they taste like crap compared to the stuff made for backpackers. Of course, maybe the MRE's I tried were really, really old.

    ^ No, you're spot on. They're awful things. Full of fat, calories, and little nutritional value. I usually lose around 10 lbs. when we're in the field for longer than a week. Usually for the field: breakfast is hot, lunch and dinner are MREs. I'll eat the small portions I can out of the packages, and the rest might as well have never existed. I usually ensure I bring enough food to last the entire time so I don't end up with headaches from malnutrition.
