Target's web site shows the same thing for $60 but the web site says "online only, not sold in store". If I knew I could hit Target in WA and pick one up, that would undoubtedly be cheaper than buying one here in AB.

We just use a little propane stove. We made hot dogs and I fried spam and scrambled eggs. It is just a little two burner Coleman thing. It has always worked well for us, pretty lightweight and does the basics. I don't like to get too complicated with things when I am cooking there, just some simple, tasty stuff.

Yeah we did sandwich stuff as well, but one big hit was carrot sticks. I bought a bag of carrots, peeled and cut them into sticks, and had a ton of them. We ate them around the campsite and in the venue and everyone wanted to share with me when I brought them out. I also brought along some broccoli but I think I ate more of that than anyone else.

Carrots sound like a good idea! Healthy and tasty snack.
We stocked up on Turkey Jerky and a humongo bag of trail mix from Costco last year to eat during the day. Neither one of us really eat that much, so if we we're in the fest, we'd usually just split a personal pizza or chicken fingers for the day. When it got darker out, we would just snack on some trail mix. But I think we can get a little more creative! Like maybe carrots and hummus or chips and salsa, stuff like that. We'll take a closer look when we're stocking up at the grocery stores this year, I suppose.
But part of me wants to somehow find a way to have the ultimate campsite pig out. Y'know--s'mores, hot dogs, burgers, kabobs, etc. Unfortunately, since we're lugging everything when we fly, we just can't fit all of that equipment in our bags. Humph.
