I'm doing just what the title says--going on a road trip and car-camping rather than stop at hotels. One reason for doing that is to save money, another is because I haven't done nearly as much camping as I would like to in recent months. My ultimate destination will be Yellowstone National Park, and I'll be traveling northward through the Rockies.
I'm going alone, and I'm trying to decide what food I want to bring with me (I have a one-burner propane stove). Breakfast is easy and so is lunch, but supper is a bit of a conundrum. Normally I can just put my leftovers in the fridge--that's not much of an option here, as space in my cooler will be limited.
So who can suggest good camp food for one person with a one-burner stove?
I was thinking something along these lines--pre-preparing portions into separate containers so all I have to do is pull them out and cook them. Hot dogs are definitely going on the menu, because the best hot dog I ever had was cooked over a campfire. Gonna do that again.
Curious, what is your point of origin? I assume you have your route all mapped out, and intend to stop at specific areas during the trip at specific times. If so, where will your rest points be at? And, how much do RV park areas cost anyway? I am not familiar with the RV scene but I have noticed that sometimes there will be random RVs parked in some street corner for a day and then be gone the next. Is that normal practice for RVers? I have heard something about places like Walmart parking lots being free places for overnight parking for RVers but I am not sure if this is true or not.
I'm driving out of Lubbock, Texas, and I won't be in an RV. My definition of "car camping" is loading my gear into my usual car, pulling over for the night in a USFS or NPS campground and setting up my tent near my car.
