  • as much as it is to want ease of cooking and recipes for these trips like steak or great easy meals I'd like to see someone who knows good food like marinated pork chops or bbq ribs

  • Who was that person checking the customer out? Is this what was used to be called customer service? Plus, he did not have to bag his own groceries or get a wage for doing a cashiers job. Wow, History rocks!

  • When we have leftovers (or when I cook double) I freeze as "TV dinners" in individual portions. These can be great grab and go lunches and camping fair. Packed frozen with bottles of frozen water or juice as ice packs these are cheap meals we know we enjoy. Taco mince, Spag Bol mince, Roast meat and veg frozen in homemade gravy. πŸ™‚

  • quick tip, oatmeal + herbal or fruit tea is awesome, cheap and easy. Spiced Apple tea (Twinnings), made up than mixed hot with "instant" oats is one of my favourites. I use a large microwave style plastic cup with a lid. first I make up the tea with boiled water, leaving room for the oats. I take out the teabag, add the oats, stir and put the lid on. a few minutes later it is ready to eat. Dried fruit, cut small as well as nuts (basic trail mixes) added with the oats hydrate as and turn it into something wonderful πŸ™‚

  • Great video mate, im subbed and I hope you get a chance to check out my channel and mabey sub back if you like what you see, Cheers and keep up the good work! πŸ˜€

  • all wrong the food he choose on video it's heavy it's easy breakable if you go camping and caring everything in your rucksack if you have sleeping bag tent gas cooker etc and you on mountain over 4000 meters every single milligram makes big difference

  • Hey! Have you ever tried – jujomarty family fat burning meals (do a google search)? Ive made some incredible dishes and my cousin got excellent results with it too.

  • I hate the question. It's almost like they are hiding stuff and want to find out if you can find it. Dude, I've had three beers and a bongload…No, I didn't find it. You win, grocery man.

  • I'd recommend a carton sauce (Pomi) or pouring the sauce in a bag rather than taking a glass jar into the woods. Too many camp sites are covered in broken glass.
