I will be doing about 4-5 weeks of camping in the mountains in West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee this Summer. I think I'm pretty well prepared, but I don't want to forget anything, and would love to hear your tips for what to bring, what to remember, etc. Extra bonus points for good recipes and tips on powering devices!

I want to prepare some plain noodles ahead of time and then reheat them when I'm in a cabin with no microwave and no sink. I'll have two gas fire rings, a wood stove, and can bring whatever pots and pans are necessary. Advice? [more inside]
Looking for ideas of really great food to bring on a car camping trip. Bonus points if it involves cooking over the campfire. I am attending an annual family long weekend camping trip with my fiance in a few weeks, and am drawing a blank on what to bring foodwise. I'm looking for ideas of main courses suitable for dinner as well as side dishes or dessert, that will blow people's socks off. [more inside]
My family will be vacationing with another on a houseboat. Total of 4 adults and 5 kids, all good eaters (but the kids are kids, too). We are trying to optimize our food and seeking wisdom from those with experience. [more inside]
I'm going car camping next week, and I'd like to bring a small amount of oil to cook with. I currently have a giant jug of oil and no desire to spend $6 on a tiny glass bottle of the same stuff. is there a container I can decant the oil into that WILL NOT spill in my car? I'm also looking to avoid a leaky container in an oily nasty ziploc. Clearly a cheap or recycled option would be best, but I'd be willing to buy something if it could be washed and reused and would never, ever leak.
Going on a 2 night trip with a couple of vegans. I don't particularly like vegetables and I especially like things like butter. When camping I like to fish, make meaty chili, etc. Can I please have your tastiest things to make and do around the campfire with my vegepeople. [more inside]

Staying at a campground next weekend. It's near a city, so not really away from everything, and we're staying in a camping cabin, so not roughing it too hard. But we are planning to cook a few times while there. I need some hassle-free and not-too-bad-for-you recipes! [more inside]
Please give me your best long-distance hiking / bicycle touring / <insert other adventurous endurance activity> food recipes! [more inside]
We'll be camping with the kids (5 yrs and 18 months) for 2 nights, with a cooler full of ice and a tiny sterno stove. Got any suggestions for no-cook (or very-little-cook) family meals - besides cheese and crackers and baby carrots?
