Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Walnut Creek Park
We’ll head out to Walnut Creek early and go over the basics of preparing a menu for the backcountry. This will include some ideas as to how many calories you need, how to spread out food throughout the day, how to use a whisperlite, and preparing a few dinner dishes. None of this is professional advice, but will be rather based on experience.
We will prepare a few dishes (probably 3) for the potluck portion of the creek-a-thon. I have yet to finalize an idea but am going to lean toward a classic, satisfying, and hearty dish that can be vegetarian or not, one of my favorites based on an Indian dish, and some other perhaps slightly creative dish (undecided). If you have a favorite one-pot meal, email me the recipe and i’ll see if i can adapt it for the woods (I can go over how to do that too if people are interested).
This is not an overnite trip, so the club will not reimburse food costs. As a result, there will be a minimal fee of $3 for the groceries. On the plus side, it will be a contribution to the potluck dinner!
