Food & Drink

Breakfast, Snacks, Dinner, Coffee

What are your favorite camping meals?

Once a week, I'd like to bring donated meals to the group as a way to bolster our efforts with Community support.

Donated steaks and groceries will be much appreciated; otherwise, we figure for about $550/month + $55 in fuel


we can keep each person well fed and hydrated day in and day out,

June to October. In coming years, I'd like to see the season starting in March at lower elevations, and eventually operating year-round in different regions, with vacation retreats and breaks mostly during the coldest stretches of wintertime.

Fuel should go far enough for regular, warm showers, too!

Season Total ~ $3360/person


I envision there being a hunter's camp style canvas kitchen tent where the meal prep, cooking and gathering for meals can take place.
