Wow! Great idea, the Subway thing! I have a decent list going but am trying to minimize the "ice chest" or "refrigerator" quotient with out giving up fresh and wholesome foods. It's a long trip with no farmer's market in sight.

Maybe slightly off-topic, but has anyone thought about or actually used dry ice instead of water ice in their (non-powered) fridge? Water ice cools things okay, but leaves such a mess. I'm thinking dry ice would get things colder, longer, with no clean up whatsoever. I don't think suffocation would be a serious worry, as we don't sleep on the floor too often.

We went to a campout and someone used dried ice. They brought frozen Popsicles and they were frozen the whole weekend.
so It will keep stuff real cold.

Helpful hint: Raley's sells dry ice by the pound. Of course, you must live in Northern California or Nevada to fully appreciate this tip.

Westywoman commented that the Frank Condelli inserts for the VW Camper stove top are way overpriced. Not only are they expensive, but they warp, rather badly. Though they are reputed to be good for making toast, every time I've tried, the bread stuck to them (though it does not stick to the stainless steel grate itself).

This past weekend was "camping lite". Catered dinner Saturday night, no need to drag along the grill stove, etc. Sunday breakfast consisted of yogurt, bagel w/ cream cheese & previously cooked bacon strips and fruit. Perfect- no muss, no fuss! Didn't clean a single pan.

Who you calling "sloppy"?
