Hanger is a real. But it is also preventable. However, when you are traveling preparing for the inevitable need to eat can get a bit more complicated. But because the constraints around eating on a car trip vs. hoping on a plane are quite a bit different I'll focus for now on air travel. Let's break it down to the main constraints.
The inspiration for your camping meals doesn't have to come from camping. Most of ours actually come from random things we eat either around San Francisco or while we are traveling.

I wanted to share a few of their stories and
