    Hello from the Peach State!!

    Greeting fellow hammockers... I am not a newbie to camping, in fact I love the outdoors. but I am a new convert! Both my camping buddy ( he will be here soon) and I have new hammocks that we are itching to start camping in.

    Any tips would be great so I will be spending a lot of time here in the forum.

    Wish me luck and I will see you on the trail. And I will have some great food with me since I usually become the cook. even back in my car-camping days, Good-Ole-Steve (my real name) always had the cooler full of breakfast food.

    Any camping trip we went on the usual question was if I was to do the cooking. if not, I was quickly nominated to be the camp cook -which I didnt mind at all.

    So, now that we are hiking into camp instead of driving up to the fire pit, the challenge is for me to find some light-weight and takes up little space but still tasty food to take on the trail.

    And since I love a good challange and refuse to retire my chef's hat, I plan on making some tasty discoveries.

    I also accept all tips and suggestions on tasty dishes to eat on the trail - under the tarp - and out of the back of a pickup.

    I have even surprised some of my hunting buddies when I stayed in my climbing stand ALL DAY with only a couple pounds of food, water and a P-bottle. when I told them what I ate, they wish they had joined me instead of coming down from their stand to hoof it Mickey-Dees.

    I just laugh and burp.

    I am sure it will be a pleasure and a learning experience being here.
    Good bless to all and dont forget to leave no sign.

    -Steve

    Welcome to the forums.

    I'll never understand why you guys get to keep being the peach state. We grow more peaches than GA. Not fair.

    As for food, I mostly car camp myself and day hike. I guess my favorite thing to do would be dehydrated hamburger, dehydrated veggie mix (corn, carrots, peas, onions), gravy mix, hot water and mashed potato flakes. Kind of a trail side cottage pie.

    What I'd love to find is a way to make cherry or apple cobbler on the trail. Sometimes a sugary desert is what is called for at the end of the day.

    Don't bring me the pieces of your shattered cross

    I will look into that. There are some Apple and Cherry pies that I have seen at the quickie store.... like .50 cents... they are GOOOOO-OOD but are loaded with the bad stuff..... but on the trail you can burn that off by lunch time the next day.

    But I will think about that one and try to come up with something.

    I tried to do some DIY dehydrated ground beef and it turned out great.... I was just scared to actually eat it. Where do you buy your dehydrated meat?

    Welcome Chef!

    I enjoy cooking on the smoker - never really done much of anything to write home about on the trail. But I do like to eat!

    I made it myself.

    I was scared to eat it too, at first. But I was also hungry. No gastro-intestinal problems that I know of.
