Tim, I've had a Collins Street cake just about every year since childhood. None better. Yes, I'm one of the very few who actually LIKES fruitcake. Gotta know how to eat it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Are you a 'slice at a time' or a 'pick the nuts out that you like' kind of guy is what we really want to know Paul <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

tortilla shells
bananas
NUTELLA

Coat 1 shell with a beautiful and semi thick layer.
Take a banana and slice length wise.
Place 1 banana half in shell and roll.
Now you have a fast meal or snack.

Remember with high fat/protein foods that you need to consume a large amount of water for proper digestion to assimilate the benefits without becoming dehydrated.

I can't remember whether this was a polar expedition or a Himalayan one I was reading about, but their favorite thing to eat was a stick of butter rolled in sugar. Now that's what I'm TALKIN' about!

I saw that somewhere too-here maybe? That sounds really disgusting to me though. I'd much rather have chocolate or something sweet like that.

btw, I was at an outdoors show a while back and one of the vendors, Oregon Trail, was selling elk sausage and various other smoked meats. The elk was farm raised, like deer and I have to say, it was pretty tasty. It was a good alternative to salami, which I really like. The cost is about the same - $10 a pound.

We have a couple of commercial elk ranches here. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> I can pick up an elk roast at the farmers market in Bend. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />Also buffalo and other game <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />- AND - grass fed beef - it is so much better than corn fed beef. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I've heard of water bottles filled with vegetable oil as the way to get your calories while climbing at high altitude.
