  • Essential Backcountry Camping Preparation Checklist

    If you're in the back country for 3 days, I bring fresh food. It adds a couple of pounds but its consumed.If you bring meat/chicken, freeze it rock hard, travel in an ice chest and before trailing, double wrap in paper. You can also put a sliver of dry ice wrapped in paper against the meat and it sustains. Once in the back country if camping at a lake/stream, and the meat is thawing, you can also submerge the meat in a double wrapped plastic freezer bags and encase in a mesh bag and tether off- water of 42 degrees or so is greatI've found there's nothing like a meal of steak, mushrooms, broccoli, peaches apples to finish off a meal before packing out.
