I am heading out on the road for a few months to climb this fall and am looking for the best options for food that is cheap, has a long shelf life, and doesn't need to be refrigerated. Any suggestions of what people eat when they're on the road, on the wall, or in the mountains would be appreciated. Thanks

It depends on what's in the dumpster.

Well now that is obvious, like Top Ramen, and canned food.

Map out all the nabisco, frito-lay, Entenmanns, and canned good distributers. Visit their yards.

Eat well

Rice and dried beans are quite inexpensive, long lasting, and combine for complete protein.

BITD for the Valley DBers, it was whatever food that was left on the trays in the cafeteria

"cheese and strawberry jam

or millitary ration packs"

All the Army kids seem to get addicted to Sriracha trying to choke that stuff down. That reminds me, anything is edible with the appropriate application of hot sauce. Sriracha is more garlicy than hot but I digress.

nah tabasco hot sauce, makes anything edible;

soup, dog food, milk shakes from mcdonalds, cereal.. you get the idea, blanket out the foul taste of what your eating with something so over powering its all you can taste

Tobasco overpowering? Not so much. Sriracha takes a bunch too. El Yucateco might start to approach "overpowering" if you dump it on.

Just an observation on the increased popularity of the rooster sauce, plus the general observation that hot sauce makes anything crappy better.

buy a dehydrator and dehydrate a lot of fruit. weeks of ramen and instant rice is going to punish your colon without fruit

Pancake mix.

Oatmeal.

Fig Newtons.

Vindaloo curry paste - put on pasta.

What does Trader Joes do, throw away food on certain days? I have to work on that.

Once bought a bag of rice and climbed for a week on it. Lost a little weight.

pasta, canned tomatoes/veggies/fruit, meat in a pouch/can, peanut butter, nutella, potatos, road kill, etc.

Dive the dumpsters for soda/beer cans to extend your cash reserves. BITD this was a standard practice in Yosemite (never really felt comfortable snarfing in the cafeteria).
