The ACK.com merchandising team is constantly finding and adding new products to the website year-round but as manufacturers prepare for 2014 this is the time of the year when we start to see some very exciting stuff heading our way.
Well, my first Boondoggle has come and gone. I will be completely honest with you, I am actually really sad that I have to wait until February to attend the next one.
Earlier this month, I started geeking out about new gear I picked up in preparation for my three and half day camping trip to Zion National Park this Labor Day weekend. The one week countdown is here, so I thought I should figure out how I’m going to fit it all in my pack.
If you’ve been following our week of cubicle cooking you may have noticed that each day our meals have fit a theme but they haven’t always complimented each other. Well, Trent and I were ready for something that meshed and decided that we’d finish things off with a three course meal consisting of a main course with a side and dessert.
For our fourth day of cubicle camping, Trent and I elected to get our cooking in early and try some of the breakfast camping food options at ACK. We’ve all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that’s even more true when you’re out on the trail.
Some of the biggest reasons people turn to camp foods like the meals from Backpacker’s Pantry and Trail Foods are for their simplicity and light weight. Today, we look at four different options that go a step further by eliminating the need for a stove.
For our second day of cubicle cooking, we pulled out four very tasty sounding main course meals from Backpacker’s Pantry to try: Chicken Alfredo, Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry, Pad Thai and Beef Stroganoff.
The standard cost of lunch at a fast food restaurant these days seems to be about $5, so to kick things off for our week of trail foods, Trent and I thought we’d take a look at trail lunches for $5 or less. From my experience with trail eating, it’s important to consider your the purpose of your meal – backcountry lunches, for example, shouldn’t be too heavy but should provide you with the energy you need to get through the rest of the day.
