How the food kitty works

  • Cooking at camp in Bryce Canyon

On all TrekAmerica camping trips, we use a 'food kitty': everyone, including the tour leader, chips in an equal amounts of money based on the length of the trip. The group is broken up into 3 or 4 smaller teams that take turns cooking, dish washing and tidying up the van.

Ice Ice Baby

  •  Icefield Parkway en route to Jasper

For some obscure reason, we all started singing that old school Vanilla Ice song "Ice Ice Baby" a few days ago. Although we are all thankful that Hip Hop has greatly evolved since 1990 – no other song would be more appropriate to describe the kind of day that we just had.
