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.
