Alright how do you pack eggs?
Alright how do you pack eggs?
Crack 'em open and pour 'em in Nalgene container.
Suicidal lizards and barefoot worms.
btw i got chiggers on my butt.
+1 to what Skab said. Throw the cheese, Texas Pete, and bacon right in the baggie, shake it up to mix and into the boiling water. Perfect omelet every time
Very carefully. No I use one of those plastic egg carriers then put some shavings in then small size eggs then some more shavings. The shavings seem to keep them from rattling. Or you could hard boil them, or scramble and freeze in a freezer bag. I've even boiled an omelet in a freezer bag. Hope this helps
Pretty much the same as madmax, but we used the tall, thin olive bottles. Yes they're glass, but they seemed to keep the eggs more "separate" and easier to pour out just how many you wanted.
Depends on how I'm traveling. If by canoe or kayak (meaning I will have cooler of some description), I pack 'em whole in a plastic carrier. If traveling by foot, I'll freeze 'em in a Nalgene bottle. They'll be thawed by the time I get ready to cook 'em the next day. If it's gonna be more than overnight, Mountain House.
Actually, I've found it best to keep them in their shells if they are farm fresh eggs. Brown and green shelled ggs from free range chickens are substantially harder than the white, store bought kind and a broody hen will sit on them, move them around all day and drop more eggs on top without many problems. We raise them here. If kept in the shell they can last for days too, much longer than if you break them open and put them in plastic. The shelf life is almost nil then really in comparison. I've had good luck packing them in a regular foam or paper egg crate and wrapping it with a towel or a shirt. I don't put a bunch of gear on top of it my pack though. When you are done you can toss the spent shells in the fire, and flatten the crate to pack it out. The paper crates can be shredded for tinder. Realistically, the container weather it be a glass or nalgene container or a paper egg crate is going to take up about the same amount of volume as do the yokes and whites; what's left is the shell itself which is negligible in terms of volume. I usually eat eggs every morning for the whole trip this way. To make it more packable, I sometimes take a crate and cut it in half and stack the two halves together, if I'm taking a full dozen.

i like scrambled eggs, so i just scramble them up ahead of time and put them in a small thermos bottle, and when your ready to cook them, pour them in your skillet with some small junks of spam, and you got a damn good hearty breakfast.
I use 1 of these, 3 or 4 days worth of eggs and never broke one. Thought about putting them in a nalgene but thats one more thing to clean and was a little worried about contamination
