Ok, this is an involved recipe. You have to get a starter, and keep it alive for a while. Then you have to plan about 2 days of your life to be available for building your bread dough, and then you have to bake it in your dutch oven. But it is worth it, and […]
*This post was originally written for The Outbound Collective. The hardest part of planning a backpacking trip is planning your meals.
One of the biggest complaints many have about backpacking food is the lack of fresh veggies. We’ve tried every tactic to get legitimate fresh veggies out there, and it’s possible, but dehydrated kale is the best option we’ve found.
We’ve been making a point to camp together once a month. It’s an easy enough goal when it’s just a local overnight trip, but the reward is huge. We get to spend quality distraction-free time together, the kids have learned to love camping, and we get some golden recipe testing out of it.
“Go paddleboarding” has been on my list of goals for 3 years now. Every time I’d plan to go, something would happen that would stop me. Once I was very sick, another time they were shooting a commercial and closed our lake, and then there was a huge 3 day storm while we were in […]

I don’t get many weekends off from work. When I get lucky with more than one day off in a row, I take advantage. This has lead to a bunch of fun quick trips so far this summer.
I recently bought a cookbook called Feedzone Portables, literally, by looking at it’s cover. There is a picture of little portable packet meals, and I realized that this is a type of meal that is really worth focusing on. We take a lot of climbing day trips or quick overnighters whenever we can get away […]
