Noticed this thread a little late.

Day hike: chocolate and hotdogs to grill on a fire if its late autoumn/winter/early spring. Sandwiches during the late spring/summer/early autoumn.

Hiking with one night in a tent: bread, tube cheese, hotdogs or steaks, maybe some freezedried mashed potatoes and snacks. Whisky

Hiking with more than one night in a tent: freeze dried meals, bread, tube cheese and snacks. Whisky

Canoe trip with one or more nights in a tent/lavoouu/tarp: steaks, freezedried mashed potatoes, hot dogs, flour to bake flatbread for breakfast. Chocolate, potatochips, peanuts, beer, cola and whatever ekse I might want :D

Do you make "Stovies" Gareth? Maybe with instant potatoes and corned beef?


...or Spam ::)

I do stovies at home, but I don't think I've ever done it out hiking.  I think I had stovies made with freeze-dried potatoes years ago and can't remember being that impressed. ;)

Proper stovies (in my house anyway) need par-boiled potatoes fried with fine chopped onion and corned beef.  Everything gets slow cooked on the hob until it all starts breaking down.  Yummy. :drool:

What kind of cheese holds up the best? 

I've had good results with a wax rind cheese... but recently bought the small Babybel cheese and it got a little soft. 

Bocks of cheddar do fine, depending on the temperature and size.

Any thoughts?

Necro-thread!  :woohoo:

I've never really taken cheese out that I can remember.  If I had to guess at one I think would do well I'd try something dry and crumbly like a Wensleydale.

For a day (any kind of day really) I'll just pack fruit and nuts.

For longer trips, I pack a selection of suimin, deb, szechuan beef, and other long life groceries. The truck has a water tank, so I can do fairly well with dehydrated stuff for a while, (including powdered milk, and pancake mix)

my "treat" is http://www.plumrose.com.au/hot-dogs/products/hot-dogs.html

I've never had them normally, so I'm not sure how they rate day-to-day, but after a week on the lam in the bush, they're right fine cuisine.

(I am known to eat the odd fish...but since this fine country requires you to get a permit to throw a line, I hardly bother anymore)
