7 Day Menu Plan - Solo Trip

LT is headed out on Sunday for his first solo foray into the park.  I wish I could join him, but I think he's looking forward to spending some time on his own. He'll be there for Canada Day.  Here's his planned route:
  • Brent Access Point
  • Cedar to Catfish - Sunday night camp at Catfish
  • Catfish to Burntroot - Monday and Tuesday nights at Burnroot
  • Burntroot to La Muir - Wednesday night at La Muir
  • La Muir to Hogan's - Thursday night at Hogan's
  • Hogan's to Catfish - Friday night at Catfish
  • Catfish to Brent Access - Saturday night safe at home

He's had to rethink what he's bringing with him.  He has to add the pots/dishes, water filtration system, and dried food to his pack.  I've weighed the food bag and it is 8 pounds without the fresh food.

All meals below marked with an asterisk (*) are from my favourite backcountry cookbook by: Chef Glenn AKA as The Backpacking Chef (

Here's what I've packed for him to enjoy:
Yep, it all goes in one bag!
  • 2 breakfasts of fresh eggs with reheated bacon
  • 2 breakfasts of blueberry pancakes with syrup and butter
  • 2 breakfasts of dehydrated eggs* with dried canned ham flakes


  • 1 fresh lunch (probably cold meat with cut fruit)
  • 2 Kraft dinners with vacuum sealed chicken pepperettes
  • dried canned baked beans with dried canned ham chunks
  • salsa, chicken, vegetables, and rice (all dehydrated)
  • pork jerky (from Costco) vacuumed sealed with crackers and cheese


  • 1 fresh dinner (the chili that we forgot to bring on our last trip)
  • 2 dinners of tricolor rotini, pasta sauce, veggies, ground beef (all dried)
  • 2 dinners of salsa, chicken, vegetables, and rice (all dehydrated)
  • 1 dinner of soft tacos with salsa, chicken and veggies (all dehydrated)


  • 2 Banana nut bread puddings* (all dehydrated ingredients)

  • homemade fruit roll ups (banana/mango)
