Is there a good place to stop to get perishables before hitting the playa?


From the south Fernly or Reno.
From the north Alturas (good selection) or Cedarville (not so good).

And from the East?

Well the chances of getting a Shaking Bessie in the desert are low.

I'd like to make popcorn out there! Maybe Jiffypop?
Someone in Hushville made popcorn in '05 (maybe AntiM?) and it sure hit the spot!

Jiffypop! Jiffypop! The magic treat! As much fun to make as it is to eat!

found out that Jiffy pop is not indefinitely shelf stable when I pulled a didn't know how old one out of the camping box for a Hey look what I brought surprise. Yeah, thank dog it smelled rancid, before it had to be tasted as such. dang.

Maybe with a solar oven....I've experimented with making popcorn with a big Fresnel from a projection TV to mixed results- Maybe it'd work better in the Black Rock Desert than at Lakes OF Fire in Michigan! Just doing it on a camp stove would be anticlimactic.

Not me, although we do bring the Jiffypop in a pan to heat over the burner. Stove burner, not a burner burner.

We bake cookies and biscuits and sweet rolls.

TAMALES in a can are a treat, too!

And fried Spam is not as bad as it sounds either!
Wrap a couple slices in a fajita shell....mmmm!

I just might have to try the bacon spam!

I like spam-flavored macadamia nuts. Yes, they exist. But not in nature.

We always stop at the Wally World in Fernley where we have a room for the night before and after. Though the WW in Winnemucca is an option as well.

36 degree's, gray skies, winter storm warning for rain/sleet/snow from now till the morning commute.

Bumper car's on the Detroit freeway system is always enjoyable and in my case helps to provide job security.

Kind of like sparkleponies. Something that tasty is eaten up in the real world.
