    Hi This is my first ride report. It is 6:30 in the morning and I am going to leave by 8. Although I have traveled to various great places by motorcycle (New Zealand, Cabo San Lucas,
    Tuktoyaktuk etc.) , I stopped taking my cooking gear with me along time ago.



    I'll be travelling with Flatlander who is a coffee drinker and freeze dried cook specialist with his mighty Mo to Virginia from upstate Ny for a 5 day trip. However little does he know I might leave him in Virginia and travel down to Texas to see my sister. He is a great riding partner that I met at Cromag about six years ago. He always brings cooking gear I don't.

    However this trip I’m going to bring all my cooking gear and a bunch of food to see if it is worth it. I have had a svea stove and used it but I am bringing that relic and all the other pots pans and cooking gear that I have in my inventory that I purchased brand new and haven't used.

    Pictures will soon follow of my gear and what a pain in the ass it is to cook and clean. My usual method is to stop maybe for a breakfast sandwich after breaking camp and then to pick up dinner at a restaurant before I pull into camp or bring a take out meal back to camp. Two meals a day.

    I'll be sending pictures of my trip and cooking meals and you Guys and Gals can chime in to see if I am having a good time. I am trying to be total efficient so I am stealing all of the food from my refrigerator that I froze and whatever put it in a cooler and see how long will it last.

    Comment on my method of camping prowess and cooking gear and of course on this site everyone is an expert and knows the right way and wrong way to do it.

    I can feel the weight of my bike already........

    Pictures to follow. Oh by the way I'm switching to my Iphone for all future correspondence on the trip so forgive the English mistakes as I try to type or speak into the phone and it messes up it's not me.

    One and Only Rule In The Game Is As Follows -

    Rule #1
    I'm the expert and there's only one way to do it right and it's my way.

    Rule #2
    anyone who disputes, argues or has issue with that ..... is ..... just simply wrong on principal.

    I'm going to fire off the one and only comment that needs to be articulated on this matter -

    "any way that you choose to "do it" is the right way, why?

    because I say so.

    simply remember that MongoLC is the expert and he says it's the right way.

    kindly refer to Rule #1 and Rule #2 above"

    Now that's clear, you can go ahead and shut down comments on this thread.

    In closing never apologize for your actions. regardless how inappropriate, wrong, misguided, offensive or hurtful you may be... admitting to these transgressions and/or abusive behaviors is simply the sign of an enlighten, evolved member of the species, and you are not that, we are not that, here.
    this is especially true when using a mobile device (which i use exclusively, i have not touched a computer, proper in months, that said, emulating my process inherently makes you "right").

    speech-to-text devices, machines know not what they do, remember you're on the ADV forum ..... most of the primates here can't read anyway.

    have a great trip, be safe, enjoy your freezer burn food and instant coffee, party on cyber warrior

    A non-cooker myself. Keep a few granola bars around, can find a restaurant within an hour or two of riding in the morning. Can ride all day after breakfast. But hats off for those who cook :dukegirl

    In 43 years of riding all over the continent, I've never carried/prepared food on a trip. It's always been "into town" for breakfast or dinner, etc. Same with riding friends in groups. We never cooked at campsites or in cabins/motels.

    Oddly, it was never discussed from day one. It seemed to be understood that we didn't do that. In fairness, these always involved road bikes so it's not like we were out in canyons or deep in the mountains for days at a time ADV-F style.

    So today I didn’t cook just had the chicken soup I put in a thermos before I left. So easy clean up. Will cook breakfast in the morning.

    Stats 350 miles. Had half a tank when I left so two gas stops were 26.40 total.

    Good Lord. You have got to be one of the stupidest mother fuckers I have ever known of. Do you think it possible to let the man tell his story without splattering your putrid verbal diarrhea all over? You must be drunk.

    Can you do that? Let the man tell his story? Nobody cares about your ignorant nonsensical blabbery rules!

    Nobody cares that you don't cook. Some of us do.
