My niece has requested some advice. She is an archeologist/anthropologist. She has taken a job in the middle of nowhere with a mining company in Nevada. They're going to prep a large area for a mine and have to do the necessary archeology first. She'll work 8 days on, 6 off. They provide water and a camp kitchen of unknown quality.
She has to supply her own food and cooking for 8 days in primitive conditions Cooking for one complicates things and the heat will kill ice after day 2 probably. So shelf stable foods without a too much labor intensity. She's pretty handy, raises her own chickens, turkeys, cooks respectably,
She'll probably team up for meals with some of the others which simplifies things, but that first week she won't know anybody.
What would you all suggest.
