IF, 5/3/1, and Vacation

I have been eating fairly clean (A LOT of beer though) and lifting inconsistently for the past year. I've finally had enough of not reaching my goals because of whatever excuses I made. I started IF last week to get my body used to it. This week is the first week that I have done IF and trained using the Wendler 5/3/1 program.

My goals are to do 531 and the Boring But Big 3 month challenge for assistance exercises (for size). I then plan on switching the assistance exercises to the bodybuilding template and a slight caloric deficit for the next 3 months.

I leave in two weeks for a trip that will put me on the road for 2 days, camping out at a music festival for 3 days, and the road again for 2 more. There will more than likely be a shortage of healthy food. What can I do in order to maintain my progress thus far?

**I am no longer consuming alcohol or bread products***

So you just started a week ago? How about just have fun at the music festival and don't worry about it? One more week isn't going to make a real impact. I doubt you will make any amazing gains in three weeks time that is worth obsessing over while on vacation, just make heathy eating choices when available and don't stress if they aren't.

Why would you do this?

Gain a bit of size during the first 3 months and then try to "cut" for the following 3 months. It's purely for aesthetics.
