here are several factors involved in every outdoor
adventure that determine the overall success of
the experience. Some are beyond our control: we
must rely on good fortune to provide sunshine, good
fishing and perfect scenery. Many more of the

our control. With proper planning and execution, we can

Get
some books from the library or your local outdoor store
and find meal suggestions in them. You may also want to
try some of the free dried meals.
Given these foods and any others that you have
discovered, you are ready to prepare the trip menu. But
before you do, here are some points to consider:
 Does anyone have food allergies or intense dislikes?
 Many Provincial Parks have a can and bottle ban.
 Your appetite may increase as the trip progresses.
 Is the trip leisurely, moderate, or strenuous?
 How long is the trip; how many extra meals should
you take?
 Is anyone a vegetarian?
 Can the meal be prepared in one or two pots on a
one-burner stove?
 How big are the appetites of the people in your
party?
 Include a few especially easy to prepare meals for
days when you just don’t feel like cooking.
 Would you eat this “stuff” at home?
 How much variety is required?
Sample Menu for a Ten to Twelve Day Trip
Here is a sample menu, one that was used on a twelveday summer canoe trip. The last few days are a little
ambiguous; the trip was scheduled for ten days, but
sufficient food was carried for fourteen days. The last
supper was one of the three spare macaroni & cheese
dinners; we anticipated being delayed because of weather
and took this into account when planning the menu. We
also carried granola and oatmeal for another two-day’s
breakfasts, just in case. The longer the trip, the more
additional food you should carry. You may not use it, but
if you are stuck for an extra day or two at least you won’t
be hungry.
Some canned food was taken since there was no can and
bottle ban and there was no portaging. A few changes
would have to be made in different circumstances.
Remember that you will have to carry any non-disposable
packaging out as well as in.
