We all keep Kosher, but everyone
on a different level. In addition, we have different likes and dislikes about
different types of foods.
It is impossible to provide food
for everybody and make them not only well fed, but also happy.
Five days of traveling is long
enough to be concerned about kosher food, but short enough to take it with you
and not take up too much cargo space.
I will give you my personal advice
(getting hungry too J).
Sunday, eat something at home
after an early Davening. You might still want to munch something on the plane.
Take some sandwiches with you for
the afternoon or evening.
Second day: (and basically the
rest of the trip)
The next morning comes and the daily
routine starts (which will be used for most of the trip.)
You will eat your breakfast in the
motel. Make sure to have enough for four days. You will need to take some bread
and something to eat it with (like cheese or salami). Same thing with lunch.
You should prepare the Lunch
sandwich in the motel and wrap it up so you can eat it on the way, or at one of
the picnic areas.
Supper should be something warm.
I advise you to use Meal Mart or
La Briute ready portions. They are ready to use and permitted by many Rabbinic
authorities to heat in any microwave oven.
All this food shouldn’t take more
than three gallons of space per person.
In case of emergency, there is a
well-supplied store in Las Vegas.
the pictures you can see how much food I take for myself. In fact, I take only
one loaf of bread. It's enough for me for four days, and the food on the
picture would easily be satisfactory for six days. Bear in mind, you will be
traveling with a guy who is 6 ft 6 inches! J.
For the first day (Sunday), besides for
breakfast you can take a sandwich for lunch. For the evening you can eat a
All the food should be packed in shopping bags. You
could add some cookies, snacks or energy bars if you want.
In addition to the food, four changes of clothes
should be taken for four days. I’d
advise you to bring along a sweater.
My things fit into a small 21 x 13 suitcase. Everything is inside the suitcase. I also take
my tefilin bag and laptop. My things are small enough to be taken as carry-on
You could take a bigger suitcase, especially
if you’re going in the winter time. In the winter some type of coat or jacket
would be useful. Summer time, it’s a good idea to take a cap or some head covering
due to the intense sunshine. Comfortable shoes are a must. You should be
content with a 26 x 16 in. size suitcase.
