    Sliced, fried potatoes or hash browns are part of a good ol' fashioned breakfast and can be found in good diners. Sizzling hash browns right off of a flat grill are the best, but the factory-made junk that is foisted off on the public in fast-food places aren't really hash browns at all. When I worked off-shore in the Gulf of Mexico as an oil exploration navigator, I worked on a vessel owned by Mobil Oil. The cook served a breakfast to die for...eggs the way you wanted 'em, grilled, sliced potatoes, and steaks! When living in Louisiana, Southern breakfasts could be had with a side of American biscuits and gravy, chili, as well as taters, too. Yum!

    Just got back from a camping trip a couple of weeks ago...it was supposed to be a fishing trip for my birthday, but as we caught no fish...well.

    Anyway, Breakfast every morning was bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns on my 22" griddle. I got it as an early birthday present and of course had to take it on the fishi...I mean camping trip. Probably one of the best birthday gifts I ever bought myself!

    Although the weekend didn't really go well, (The skunk walking into the camp on Thursday night should have been the indicator of how the rest of the weekend would go)...at least he didn't detonate. I would have gathered up the wife and got in the truck and left.

    But at least breakfast was enjoyable!
    Take care and check six!

    I've noticed food always tastes better when you're camping.

    When I used to go hiking for three or four days in the mountains, I had to pack with the least amount of weight that I could manage. Breakfast was always instant oatmeal, lunch was granola bars, and dinner was a pouch of freeze-dried something-or-other.

    Yes I used to pack light as well and eat that crap.
    Then I decided to hike less and take real food instead....far more enjoyable.

    The wife and I bought some of the new "Survival meals" that they sell at the larger sporting goods places (Sportsman's Warehouse, Cabela's, etc)...We took them camping with us last year. I was actually surprised at how good they were. Now, good being relative as I was also use to eating MRE's (Meal-Ready-to-Eat) when I was active duty.

    These new ones are generally a one entree item that you add boiling water to and let sit for a few minutes. I had the chili, beef stew, and spaghetti, the wife had some chicken based meals (don't remember exactly) and they were all quite good...or I was quite hungry. Either way, They are something that I would buy a couple of and throw in the saddle bag of the bike...just in case.

    But if I have my options, nothing beats a nice hot cooked breakfast in the morning out in the woods...When we were tearing camp down, a couple walked by and commented that "Your food always smells so good in the morning when you are making breakfast!"...Was really a nice compliment coming from someone that I didn't even know.
