On Saturday morning, Cornelius and I will leave for a week-long bicycle/camping trip on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. We’ll catch the ferry to Nanaimo, visiting Denman and Hornby Islands and taking the ferry to the Sunshine Coast. Everything we need will be carried on our bikes. Cornelius will have 2 front panniers, plus the tent, his sleeping bag and his thermarest on his back rack. I’ll be carrying 2 back panniers along with my own sleeping bag and big agnes sleeping pad on my back rack. We’ll be doing our cooking along the way with 1 small pot on our whisper light stove and whatever groceries we find at the local markets along the way. Besides oatmeal, couscous, salads, pasta, vegetables, and rice, does anyone have any easy camping meals they’d like to share? Keep in mind that we only have 1 pot and not much space to carry around excess food. Also any good restaurants and must-see stops along the way are welcome too!
