Does Dominos deliver up there!?

Postby SeaLevel » Sun Jul 01, 2007 12:38 pm

Good day all,

I was wondering what food is suggested for the climb? IF dominos does deliver up there then never mind I will order out, is it order out if your already out?!

What food is suggested that will save weight, and room in the pack?

Thanks for any replys and thanks for putting up with my weird sense of humor.

Take care up there!

Good suggestion. Also don't forget celery and iceberg lettuce. Put a couple of head in your pack and you'll be good to go for days.

very cool that you went and got the beginning of what might be considered an addiction. a back pack and some boots! very cool.

ok as far as meals, it really depends on what you are doing as far as a long weekend trip or an overnighter. here is what i usually take on a 3 day/ 2 night trip to do 14ers:

snacks: snickers(peanuts and chocolate and tasty, along with some kind of nuts(hahaha), either pistachio or roasted and for the summit something tasty like sweet candy(got myself a sweet tooth i guess!) i have also taken a few saltine crackers and a couple slices of cheese(helps with dinner also)

breakfast: most of the time i take an instant type of oatmeal(2 packs isnt that much room) that takes only a small amount of boiling water to get going.

lunch: "lunch" to me starts in the mountains on a summit day at around 10:30 a.m., with that said we are headed back down from the summit and i am munching on the snickers. so i usually dont bring anything for "lunch"

dinner: one freeze dried meal(yessir sealevel, picked up at the rei over there off of preston road) along with 2 ramen. what i will often do is save saltine crackers for one of the evening meals.

now with all of this i just wrote it seems like alot. its really not, you have to eat up at that altitude in order to have good energy. coming from Richardson on a tight time table, we hardly have, oh i dunno about zilch time acclimatize.

my experience leads me to this:
bring foods that you really enjoy eating, altitude affects my eating unless i have been up there a few days. however everyone is different


nice to see a north texan posting!
hope i could help.

Just a local custom, but there is a Subway shop that opens very early in Floressant for people like us (or buy the day before if you leave really early). Get a 12" BMT and have them wrap the sandwiches seperately.

Breakfast: 1/2 a Subway BMT on the way to the trailhead.

Lunch: 1/2 a Subway BMT at the summit. Or, as on my last hike, you can ditch the BMT and go for a bacon double cheeseburger in Buena Vista on the way home. 8)

Thanks tex!

Thanks for the reply!

I hope it is an addiction! This "challenge" has really got me off my buttocks. I guess having a goal helped me.

What do you do to train? Please don't say run! Where are some good places to hike here? I want to do the Lavon hike next week, well part of it, maybe 4 hours or so.


Bring food I enjoy eating? I need to narrow that one down some! I love to eat, thus my present shape: ROUND!

I think I will hit REI on Preston tomorrow. I may of made a mistake with the pack I got. I thought a 1200cc pack for a day trip would be ok. My friend is saying a 1500 - 1800 would be better. I got the 1200cc with a 100oz bladder.

Thanks again and I hope I can bounce questions off of ya!

Well considering the wages they would have to pay the delivery boy because of the inherent risk of the delivery, I am anticipating your order as a newly hired Domino's employee! My job title? Pizza Sherpa!!!

I've found carrying about three pounds of cheese, sharp cheddar is my favorite, is the way to go. Once you get real hungry, it will taste better than a pizza! Plus it contains enough calories to keep you alive for a week.

Pre-cooked rice and chicken, salmon, tuna, crab, clams (anything that comes in a can) - a little salt and it tastes like you made it at home!
Have a great time!
