    sodium consumption is a must for hot weather travel no?

    Are there Indian markets in the great red states? It's been awhile since I've crossed the US...

    I won't engage in the sodium debate. Most of us get more than we need.

    I'm from VT. What's a red state? We're all pinkos here. :rofl

    Too right! Big +1 on the basmati rice. There are a couple brands which package it pre-cooked, Just open the packet and mix it in with your curry. Truly lovely.

    Can't speak for the rest of Kansas, but here in Larryville, home of the Jayhawks, we're an island of blue in a sea of red.

    I've been trying to refine a technique for cooking grains in a pint stainless Thermos. Basically, put the grains in and cover with boiling water, and let sit. It takes a couple of hours, and the outcome is stickier than if they were boiled, but it works. If you do it at lunch break, the result is ready for dinner.

    Ha!

    I used to be more elaborate, but now I keep it simple, a roll of aluminum foil and stop at a supermarket, pickup a fresh steak, maybe a potatoe, carrot & onion, wrap it all up toss it in the coals, sometimes I just stop at a roadside stand for veggies. I try to avoid processed foods, an ear of corn, I just soak in water in husk, toss in fire

    other than the foil, in my cooking kit, I have some spices, and a small campfire coffee percolator that I can pull guts out of and boil water maybe a fresh egg

    seldom however to I ever do breakfast, that's a ritual for me on a ride, 50, 100 miles into the days ride I stop at a local greasy spoon, 3 eggs, sausage (pattys) home fries, whole wheat toast w jam, OJ & Coffee

    I did this the other day on my XL600. We had made a bunch of carnitas wrapped in tortillas, so I put one (wrapped in foil) between my muffler and side plastics. I used a small spring clamp to hold the edge of the foil to the the plastic to keep it from falling out.

    After about 45 minutes it was just luke warm, but I ate it anyway. I need to make something to attach food to the exhaust closer to the engine for more heat.

    Here is one, but the shape looks a bit cumbersome:

    Anyone mention VIGO yet ?
    Just add 3 cups of H2O.
    One package fills 2 people.

    Highly recommended!
