A bacon and cheddar breakfast burrito. Beef jerky. Cold iced coffee. Bananas––yes, even those. Bring all of the snacks. Leave none behind.
Especially the TRAIL MIX.
A camping classic made of 60% M&Ms, and a few handfuls of nuts and raisins.
After five days in the woods with a small crew in two crowded canoes, trail mix can become just as valuable a commodity as gold or silver.
