By my estimation, we are doing as a group (forgetting the Rubithon or Casino provided meals):

Dinner on 6/18, 6/19, 6/20
Breakfast on 6/19, 6/20, 6/22

Although Sunday's breakfast might be skipped in favor of a fast exit. Personally, I'm OK with hanging around and waiting to get out, so the Rising Sun group might split up then, the people who have hard/fast commitments hustle out and the other half enjoy a sunrise cup of coffee and relaxing wait for the carnage of people leaving. If I go first, I'd be the guy clogging the trail and being ruthlessly dragged out of the way. :-)

So I don't mind being responsible for a meal or two. You end up just making more of what you would anyway. On our annual hut trips we typically do stuff like burritos, pancakes, stews and pasta. Plus with all the fridges and dutch ovens, group cooking should be easy enough.

This is the purpose of this thread to get everyone on the same page and ultimately we'll be able to understand our refrigeration/freezer needs too. We will be doing group and individual food planning so this thread will just sort out what we need to plan for. Nothing is set in stone yet and anything can be changed as this thread matures. We can break into smaller groups, no groups or feast. Whatever we do we need to plan as space for cooler space and equipment is limited.
