I just thought it was interesting and illuminating that the "People  
Chow" recipe
(described below) was in a column one on page 25
and Duke C's appropriate and researched Musammana recipe was in column  
on that same page.

the more things change or can be researched, the more they stay the  

Glad you liked the Viking article. My part was much longer but it was  
Especially the helpful advice that Googling "viking" in Google Books  
is not very helpful
because it pulls up all the hundreds and hundreds of Viking Press books.

I tend to not eat much at Wars during the day. I just try and drink  
constantly and since
we have stayed offsite for the more recent trips, we ate supper offsite.

When we were much younger and camped and the War was maybe 4 days, we  
steaks, grilled every evening.
