Breakfast: coffee, fruit, fried eggs and bacon in cast iron over a propane or Coleman fuel stove. This gets the day started earlier: no messing with the fire half hung over.

Venison steaks usually, cooked over apple, mulberry, or cherry wood. Sliced potatoes with onions in foil, butter, seasoned salt and cracked pepper. Leftover potatoes reheated in same foil for breakfast. Veggies in foil with same potato seasonings: cauliflower, broccoli, squash and zuccini, whatever. Corn on the cob roasted over the fire until the kernels are just starting to brown: priceless. If you have never had corn like this you are missing out big time.

depends on where and how we are camping.

Regular tent campground, where a vehicle is 30 ft away? Hello Dutch Oven and Reflector Oven! Slow cooked potroast with carrots and taters, and hot cornbread!

Hiking in on the Appalachian Trail, where all food and implements is in my backpack? Dinner may be a freeze dried entrée. Breakfast? Ah- Blueberry muffins (aluminum foil reflector oven) perked coffee. Hashbrown taters, ham steak, scrambled eggs. Scramble eggs before leaving, place in heavy plastic bottle, chill just short of freezing, roll in newspapers. will stay cool overnight. Ham steak vacuum packed in plastic- no refrigeration, no food smell when stored (animal control) Hashbrowns are real potatoes and onions, skillet sitting on 5 charcoal briquettes. Aluminum percolator that I can pack stuff inside while hiking, so does not really take up much room.

Of course, the Hobo Dinner is hard to beat. Large sheet of aluminum foil. 1/4 cup meat of choice (chicken, pork chop, ground beef patty, etc) Season it well. Place on foil. 1/4 cup thin sliced potatoes, 1/4 cup veggies (carrots are good) onions, pat of butter. Seal foil- and double wrap. You can hard freeze, wrap in newspaper, will stay cold for a day in pack. Place on coals at edge of fire, rotate at 15 minutes, 30-35 minutes total cook time.
I can't believe you said something about HOBO packs. I have been eating these things for over 40 years.The first time I made them for the wife, she didn't know what to think,,,,,,,but afterwards,,,,,,,,,, she loves them. We now have them at least once a month, sometimes more often. Super fast way to make up a full meal, and best of all, there ain't no cleanup. Way to go on that posting!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of this sounds like over night Urban picnics. Camping in the back country is more Spartan. This reads like a 4 Star restaurant menu.

LOL...Yea, we have lots of trucks, to haul in lots of food and equipment/coolers packed full of good stuff to eat and drink. And tools / spare parts for the 4x4s. Not trying to prove anything, just like to get back in the boonies, and have a good time.........

I have flown over Ohio many times. Where are the deep wilderness areas near Cincinnati, Ohio? It looks very crowded from 35,000 feet.

Tools and spare parts are the most important when 4x4's are involved. There's usually not much room left for eats and drinks after that!!!!!!
