If you are starting off at camping or hiking, or if you’ve been doing it for long time, I urge you to have a tradition! Our tradition? In N Out! Yummy, high-quality, fast food In N Out! *** If you don’t know what In N Out is or do not live in the 5 states its carried in, I highly urge you to try it when you get the chance! Never frozen, fresh burgers and fries with the simplest menu around! Ok, back to traditions. No matter what outdoor activity we do, we always hit up In N Out on the way back! When you’ve been hiking around for hours, camping for days, or in the sand for 48 hours, nothing tastes as good as this restaurant- trust me!! Having a tradition like this, makes the trip that much more fun! When you bring newbies along, its fun to include them in on the tradition! Maybe its not a restaurant but its a pit-stop, like a store or looking at beautiful mother nature. Our trip always feels complete once we finish our meals!
So… what’s your tradition?
Mine is similar- just hitting up a fast food joint on my way home from camping weekends. I NEVER eat fast food normally but after a dirty long weekend camping with the dogs in my van I just want something fast and greasy! My new fave is Habit Burger- have you tried it? I like it even better than In-N-Out!
Never heard of it! Is it in California?? If I see it, I will try it!
It is. I’m in Northern CA but my sisters say they have it in Socal too 🙂

I live in Alaska and most of our trips involve really long road trips! For instance, on July 3rd we are heading on a 6 hour trip to Homer, Alaska from our home in Palmer, Alaska for the 4th of July holiday! Alaska is huge and so most places are separated either by long roads and some seriously have no roads to them (the bush!). So, anyhow, our tradition is to hit up a gas station for snacks and a full tank of gas. We sometimes will do the fast food on the way out and in…depending on the trip…but for sure the snacks and gas are essential to get the trip started off right! haha 🙂
