The Science of Eating Well! Ceiba’s Food Pack

Picture yourself floating easily downriver, exploring side canyons, communing in camp with your friends, or sitting silently on a rock soaking in your surroundings. With all there is to experience on a river trip, worrying about your next meal should not be a part of your trip.

The menu and food pack for a trip is one of the most important parts of planning your experience and can also be one of the most tricky. Particularly when you take into account food allergies and preferences. If river runner’s are not experienced in food packing for a multi-day trip in an environment with sometimes extreme temperatures and conditions, the prospect of the pack alone can be daunting.

There is a science, tried and true methods, for packing coolers to maintain optimal ice and temperature for managing food for safe-keeping, freshness and taste!

Inside the Ceiba Food-Pack


When it comes to packing food, Lynn Roeder packs the food with precision, keeping in mind convenience and simplicity of use. Her knowledge in preparing a foodpack stems from her experience on the river itself. Growing up in the southwest, Lynn discovered at an early age her love for adventure and boating on desert rivers. She began rafting on the daily section of the Colorado River in Moab Utah. She has worked on the Green River, Westwater and Desolaton Gray. No shrinking violet, Lynn motored 22-foot snout rigs on 100,000 cfs in Cataract Canyon! She has also completed close to 300 trips in Grand Canyon, both rowing and motoring.
