All great ideas some of which I will borrow.

Has anyone tried pancake mix to which you just add water? Not sure what it's made of - probably some sort of petroleum product.

Also nachos and salsa - great for midnight munchies - also great when shared with new friends.

I can vouch for the “just add water” pancakes. Used them a couple of years out there. The easiest is to bring the pre-measured mix in a plastic jug that you can add the water and shake until it is mixed. Then pour on the griddle and enjoy.

A jug is a neat trick I can't recall seeing used before.
Makes me think of the Chinese food cardboard tubs with lid.
The playa dust has all sorts of not nice things in it, that you don't want in your food.
(note the rule of large camps needing to keep coolers up off the ground)
For canoe trips, I have pre-measured mix (of all types) into a ziplock freezer bag, sized for the volume of mix with water, then rolled up to pack before use.

That's one word I regret googling during breakfast.

Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.

, but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
