Watch our new HD video production to get ideas of easy meals you can create while living in your vehicle.  I’ve been sleeping in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL, or vandwelling for eight months straight now.  Being out there, and doing IT, teaches you what it takes to plan for a long road trip.  However, maybe this blog post will inspire you to do more car camping.  It’s been an amazing experience, and my pleasure to share with you.  I’m so glad I’ve been able to see more of the Pacific Northwest while I’m young, wild, and free.  Now I just need to find more stickers to paste on my VW Bus.

Many food suggestions shown in the YouTube video are also ideal for backpacking, because they are ready instantly with hot water. Other dishes, or side meals are fully prepared for consumption as is, such as the individually wrapped granola bars.  I also eat plenty of fresh organic fruit, and drink spring or distilled water.  No tap.

Tip:  Use different sizes of Ziploc bags to store food items in, and label each kit with a permanent pen.  You can compact the plastic storage sacks, and take most of the air out of them, so they are almost vacuum sealed, and take up minimal space.  Then put the locked baggies in larger bins, or the pockets of your Everyday Carry backpack for safekeeping.

Survival Bros has been camping at Saddle Mountain.  This is a quick, and easy breakfast beverage guaranteed to get you moving, like it did me.  It tastes great, and mixes well, even with cold liquids.  Directions:
1.  Dump 1 packet of Carnation Instant Breakfast mix into container.
2.  Open instant coffee crystals and pour into bottle too.
3.  Add 6 ounces of spring water, plus 6 ounces of chocolate hemp milk.
4.  Shake, and enjoy.

This is a terrific pick-me-up in the A.M.   Maybe you’d like to sip it slowly a hike, or while going about your day.  Survival Bros prepares this recipe because it’s delicious, fast, and doesn’t make a mess to create. Just toss the wrappers, rinse out your container, and get on with it.  Peace and love from the road.
