[4x4Wire] A Good Trail Master Masters Meal Planning - 08/20/16 09:41 PM

We were in a real jam. Two days into a 10-day trip in Monument Valley, mechanical problems forced two vehicles to head home. We hated to lose our the four-wheeling friends, but more importantly, we ran into a minor food crisis: How do we account for the meals those individuals were scheduled to prepare? 


Each of us brought food for our designated meals, but we were counting on those individuals to contribute on their assigned days. Suddenly we were scrambling to account for their departure. 


This incident, while not typical of a 4WD experience, does happen. A good Trail Master understands and accepts this, and factors it into trip planning. Of all the myriad decisions you make, one is how to handle meals.

From the article, I have found a combo of 1 and 2 works best, this way you are covered for all the food you like and need for the planned outing/extra days if needed, and also not relying/waiting for dinner after a long day on the trail.

Even when going on large paid-trail rides where meals are planned, I like to bring my own, I just don't feel comfortable relying on others, also ensures you get enough food.grin
