Want to add a twist of Ital­ian? Break out the bread and olive oil. Spike it with a vine­gar dip made with gar­lic and fresh rose­mary. Of course, that’ll have to be paired with a good wine. Con­sult your lo­cal som­me­lier for some sug­ges­tions.

Speak­ing of drink­ing, never mix al­co­hol and driv­ing. Just be­cause you’re in the wide-open coun­try, don’t think for a minute that you can’t get hurt or worse. Save the liquor for when you’re back in camp.

If you want to be more dar­ing, you might con­sider meat­balls, cock­tail franks or sushi. One draw­back, though mi­nor, is that these (with the ex­cep­tion of sushi) must be heated. So, this isn’t some­thing that can be quickly served on ar­rival in camp. Make sure you keep the sushi chilled.

Veg­gie plates are nice, too, es­pe­cially on hot, dry days. Pur­chase the veg­gies sep­a­rately, and make up the serv­ing tray in camp. The combo plat­ter from the store is too large for most mo­bile fridges.

Slices of ap­ple and other fruit are also a hit. They can be en­joyed dur­ing the ride and at the end of the day.

Other than that, re­mem­ber to pack the nec­es­sary uten­sils and a cut­ting board/serv­ing plat­ter. It’s prob­a­bly a good idea to have some water or Handi Wipes at the ta­ble. Some guys don’t bother to wash up be­fore grab­bing some eats.

I was try­ing to avoid a laun­dry list of snacks but if you are like me, I can never re­mem­ber once I get to the gro­cery store. So a list might help. KK6NXP aka Tim’s Chili Dip De­light

The only in­gre­di­ent missing is TABASCO sauce for Tim’s Chili Dip De­light

Salami makes a great trail snack as it can be kept quite a long time with­out a chiller.
