About the Authors Christine and Tim Conners are the authors of Lipsmackin Backpackin and Lipsmackin Vegetarian Backpackin, two of the most popular trail cooking books of the past decade. Christine is a former Girl Scout from her home state of Hawaii. Tim was a Cub Scout during his youth in Ohio, and as an adult, served as Den Leader and Assistant Cubmaster in Georgia s Coastal Empire Council. At the invitation of the Boy Scouts of America, the Conners recently served as judges for Scouting magazine s prestigious national camp food cooking contest, a watershed moment that ultimately led to the creation of this book. Tim and Christine have been testing outdoor foods practically nonstop for over ten years. They are grateful that their four children are wonderfully accustomed to, and generally entertained by, the enormous range of outdoor culinary eccentricities that their parents have brought into the kitchen from the backyard! The Conners family lives in Georgia, where a Dutch oven can often be found warming over coals in the fire pit.
