grand wall cooking

Post by kristina » Fri Jul 22, 2011 10:02 pm

hey everyone

my bf and i will be flying in from ontario in august (hopefully bringing some of the heat and sunshine with us) and staying at the chief campground for two weeks. the plan is to dirtbag it this time around, and live just with what we can fly over in our backpacks. shouldn't be too hard- i spent a summer in whistler so i know that hitch hiking's pretty much the other form of public transportation and if that fails, the town grocery store isn't an impossibly long walk away... but- aside from the pasta we'll be cooking on our little camp stove, i'm looking for ideas on how to prepare food (ie, meat) at the chief? i mean, we can't have a fire and we can't stuff a coleman grill into our backpacks... any tips?

I like to class is up and buy some canned chicken (tuna/salmon works too) and mix it in with a bag of sidekick instant rice. You can cook that in one pot over a camp stove no problem. As a bonus, you should have no trouble covering your sodium intake. Enjoy the visit.

lol other matt. thanks for the canned meat + insta rice beta. mmmm mmmmm :? guess dirtbags can't be choosers.

and natedogg, we'll be flying in from the nation's capital- we're regulars at coyote rock gym, though my bouldering addiction should be traced back to boulderz in toronto.

Protip: the water is still very cold. If you're cunning, you can find ways to keep your food well refrigerated. This means that you can keep eggs, bacon, etc., for a couple of days even during a Squamish summer.
