Re: Provisioning for Gunkholing and Voyaging on Small Light Displacement Sailboats

I use Irish Cream in my coffee because it keeps without refrigeration and I've given up spam for the meat of real seamen.

Re: Provisioning for Gunkholing and Voyaging on Small Light Displacement Sailboats

Have also used dry ice, most success use was to to raise crew moral days into cruise with ice cream after dinner.
Also agree with above mentioned corned beef, Lentils, and then there is the pesto ice cubes turned into pesto/pasta or rice.
Eggs room temp. good for extended time and find that Tortillas store for long time as well.
I keep a destinations notebook with much local knowledge of my cruising area (long Is sound) which includes
ports with easy access to provisions, water, ice, fuel, repairs etc.
Example... Manhasset bay north town dock..Stop n shop across street, restaurants, west marine very short walk...etc.
Thinking will be helpful to start a thread dedicated to just that in LIS area. I will start tonight,
maybe others will contribute in their cruising grounds.

Ill 2nd tortillas.
Very filling.
I buy the large 16ct packs of the large 10" mission buritto tortillas and they have never not been freshish.
Still have some that are 5 months on the boat.
Be aware they are big carbs
To me, that brand is worth its small premiun price

Great idea,

I have used that IGA in Port Washington a few times along with the free moorings. Very cruiser friendly

Greenport is also a great place to reprovision as is Sag Harbor.

We often plan our trip around a place to resupply with fresh fruits and vegetables weekly.

When motorcycle camping I've forgone everyrhing that needs to be cold. Water sources are never an issue in the Cascades so I took a Sawyer Squeeze filter. A lot of Mountain House and Packit Gourmet dehydrated meals. My favorite quick, high calorie meal is Idohoan instant mashed potatoes with Spam cut in to chunks and fried in butter.

I use a Trangia 27 series alcohol cooker. It has a kettle, 2 bowls, and a frying pan.

It’s no wonder the European chefs turn their noses skyward when it comes to American cuisine

America has invented the hot dog, McDonald’s, and throw away fast food.

Be careful with eggs in the US . The are produced to be refrigerated

Also eggs dehydrate through the porous shell meaning that the egg cavity has more air in them over time

Because I am riding a dirtbike and cannot keep any sort of refrigeration on me? Spam and taters are a QUICK high calorie meal I can have while ripping mountain trails. I'm not going to stop and prepare paella.

We crossed the pacific without any refrigeration whatsoever.

Spam = good.

I really don't think you could stick your nose up any higher if you tried.

I eat what I like. Not what you think I should like.
