foods to eat while travelling

We travelled from the west coast of Canada to the east coast & back again this summer. If we felt like eating it was snack foods (not anything that could be deemed good for you) while driving & bottled water. Any other time we pulled over to the side & parked the Beast with HOWie and made a quick meal. If we were out sightseeing we made sure to stop at some little out of the way diner for a meal. We found some of the best meals in those places that were spur of the moment decisions to "eat there". Cheerio

Beef Jerky!!!!

But I have to admit to routinely eating all kinds of sandwiches and fruit while driving. we have a step stool from our lounger which serves as a great side table.

I normally don't eat while driving, it is a tremendous responsibility to drive safely, after all- DW's life in literally in my hands. If I do get hungry we find a stop and park to eat. Distracted driving is now a chargeable offense. Now the fine isn't that much, but___ when the RV insurance goes up $300-$600/year because of a traffic violation it gets your attention.
I one made a man mad at me on this subject. He said this was an advantage of owning a MH, he could have his wife to make a sandwich while they were rolling along the interstate. I asked why he wanted her dead. The rest of the conversation went downhill fast.

I'm not surprised. You would have gotten a similar response from me.

I don't eat or drink while driving. I like to keep both hands on the wheel as I was taught to do many years ago when I learned to drive. It can also be, I'm sure, distracting to try and not spill that hot coffee or drop that greasy french fry in your lap.

I always have a nice cup of hot coffee with a non spill cap (so I don't scorch my nicky nackies) and rice crackers in a small cup for a snack. We drive for 6 hours a day and try and park it at 3pm and relax. Works great for us !

When in the TT and now A, I would usually just have snacks/chips and coffee or soda. If just driving the car or truck my favorite was two mcdonalds cheeseburgers and fries. With the RV's, if I want anything more substantial than snacks I will pull of, more relaxing that way. If I am in that big of a hurry in the A, I think I am doing it wrong

Anything i want. Usually plan my lunch either at breakfast or the evening before then fix it right after breakfast. I usually leave early in the morning and only stop for fuel, so i put it beside me when I leave. Nothing in between meals except water. Not sure i understand the distraction theory, either eating or driving must be to hard on some.

Pizza was fun! New York style too with the long thin slices that you have to fold and still use 2 hands, dripping that grease onto the wheel (better than on those expensive pants). Deviled eggs were interesting too, try picking one of those suckers up one handed without making a mess while watching the road....
We usually do snacks, trailmix type stuff, or bite size servings of sandwiches.

Nothing, except a soft drink or water for me...as one of the other members said, I'm driving a building...for me that's enough. I have not traveled far in our new Fleetwood Bounder 33U yet, but in the short trip we took over to Pahrump, driving a "building" takes a bit of focus.
