I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.


  • I am headed out on the JMT this summer and one item I found and will pack – the small packets of coconut oil. I put them in many food items including steel cut oatmeal (created in a thermos) as well as my coffee, and then I use what is left over (which is plenty) for washing my face and moisturizing my entire body. Whole lotta bang for the buck.

  • I recently took their basil linguine on the trail, as well as sundried tomatoes. Made quite a meal!

    I’m a huge fan of all their snacks, although I am guilty of packing wayyyy too much TJs food because I can’t pick which snacks I want most!

  • While I agree that TJ’s has all kinds of yummy stuff, I don’t find it to be less expensive–or have less packaging–than boil-and-rehydrate meals. Tastier, yes.
