Pilot Bread Smackdown

| June 20, 2011

The following video shows what happens in a cook tent when you are sitting around on a glacier in the Arctic Circle in a complete and total white out.  Juvenile humor ensues.

Pilot Bread Crackers are an Alaskan delicacy which I previously have only found in the Anchorage CostCo, but am thrilled to say is now in the SLC store as well.  They are great for trips as they are durable and versatile (as the video demonstrates) and once you develop a taste for them, you could eat, oh, five or six of them in one sitting.  They are dry but edible on their own, but really come alive with cheese, hot sauce or just about anything else.
