Hey I know this has been addressed before but seeing if anyone has some new ideas. On Thursday I leave Alaska and am driving down to Durango, CO. I tend to snack a lot on long trips like this so any advice as to food would be good. Thus far I'm planning on: carrots and fruit (see if I can sneak them across the border haha), almonds, raisins, beef jerky, lots of tea...then I'm drawing a blank. And I don't want to get out the stove and cook so whatever I can toss in a cooler.

Thanks

Fruit, veggies, nuts, seeds, a pop tart (or two), grass-fed beef jerky, water, Larabars...and the MUST-have item: a small flask filled with grain-free alcohol - tequilla! (100% agava). The rest of the time, forget about food (long fast) and enjoy the trip...

A map should come in handy as well.

Make fruit leather/dehydrated stuff. Well, maybe not for THIS trip (you'd have to buy a dehydrator or use an oven, which is unadvisable), but it's tasty, storable health food.

Almost forgot smoked salmon. Air-tight seal, thinly packaged snack that stays fresh for up to a year. Not to mention tasty and healthy. Top of the list.

This may sound strange but I have read about people wrapping foods to be cooked in aluminum foil and placing on top of their hot engine for a half hour while driving. After 30min or so, stop along the way for a quick picnic. You can probably find more info googling engine cooking or similar. You could pick up a steak and corn on the cob at a store along the way, wrap and go...

James...I may have to try that just to see if it works haha..I'll let you guys know.

OK so it sounds like: fruit and veggies, almonds, beef jerky, smoke salmon (yes I have tons of it), haha Tequila? sorry no much of a tequila drinker and I don't know if the highway patrol accepts "but it's not grain based" as an excuse...

In regards to the cooking on the engine. I just saw that done on "Ace of Cakes". The main character strapped a can of beans to the outside of his exhaust pipe and a foil wrapped potato was wedged near the exhaust manifold. Im not sure how far he drove like that but he said it was super hot!

I would just do extended fasting.

Maybe some nuts and jerky.
