These seem a little cheaper for the 24 hr style food rations
at around $27 for a box of 12

A 4 piece rod and reel or just some line with hooks and dig your worms by the river bank. A nice trout or bass then onto the coals (wholes, boles, wrapped in wet newspaper). Skin peels off with the newspaper and the gut all shrivelled into a ball. Take an onion and galic clove with lemon/mango dressing; an absolute gourmet bush dinner! Oooh, and no dishes!
If I'm organized, I'll take a packet of 'wraps' (flat, square breads; corn, wheat, etc.) and tinned tunas (with ring pulls). A quick, easy meal with good carbs and protein and follow up with fresh carrots and pre-cooked corn cobs.
I make my own bread and sometimes take a few thick slices of fruit loaf you can either toast or eat fresh, YUM!

The only problem I can forsee with this one, there isnt many places in central Oz where you need to be self sufficient that you can catch trout or bass.

Another one, i dont have the room for the amount of cans I have to drink before catching a fish

G'day Neil!

I resurected this thread because I'm doing some research on food to take to the border run and beyond. I'll be away for over 14 days and my aim is to cook for myself at least 12 of those.

Just trying to put a decent list together.

G'day Mate,

Take rice, or pasta. It's easy to prepare, then you can buy fresh meat, sauces, and stuff to go with it as you pass through towns. I've been buying the brown organic stuff, seems to have better taste. Then I carry cracker biscuits and the small tins of tuna mixers and salmon. They are nutricious and don't take up a lot of room, and will suffice as a meal until you can eat properly. Muesli bars etc for snacks, but I don't buy the mainstream stuff. Too much sugar and fats. A lot of the guys seem to use the cook in the packet type meals, but I'm not really a fan. If you buy as you go, in small towns etc, you carry less, and the food tends to be fresher.

On my recent Simpson trip I tried the following:

Indian 'boil in the bag' type meals. Not the best food I've eaten but ok. I have seen pasta dishes in foil since then and they look good. Try Woolies as Coles didnt have them here.

Tuna in foil sachets was also easy to pack and the rubbish was easy to cart out.

Fantastic brand mash potato in a cup was good, a bit like the same brand noodles, just add water, 3 mins later, mash!

Cambells chunky soup (in a tin)

Woolies also seemed to stock a greater range of smaller single serve items, eg tinned vegies and baked beans etc.

I found by eating a bigger breakfast and lunch there was a lot less stuffing around at night as I would eat less, then I would have more time to sit back and have a few scotches.

Yeh, I hear they were all feeling safe, despite the vegan berly he was throwing overboard.


Hi Gad
missed you at the OCR.


Steve, I second the tins of tuna and I like a few Vita-wheat for a quick meal on the road. The Vita-wheat traveled well on the bike gave you something to crunch on and don't go stale as quick as bread. I try to buy a bit of fruit as I go but you have to ignore the prices they ask when you get out a bit. For dinner I tended to buy something and when we camped I used a packet of pasta/rice etc. which got boring. The guys who had the back country meals seemed to like them, tasty, quick to prepare, with no washing up and considered them reasonable value.
I will give them a try next time.

Here's a good link to compare what's available.
http://www.wildernessdining.com/campingfood.html

Try these, I have used them often and they run from tolerable to fairly tasty.

Don't bother with Backpacker's Pantry It's total crap! you'd be better off with the road kill cook book. Pack alot of hot sauce or curry powder and anything is eatible.
