I feel like I am the only one that relies on public transportation nearly all the time around here. So no car trunk goodies for me. Usually it's get go bus or train stop that will get me back home. Sometimes at these stops, mostly in small towns in Sweden or Norway, there are small coffee shops or hot dog/burger joints, where I will usually get a hot cup of coffee and a bar of chocolate to enjoy as I unintentionally make villagers uncomfortable on several different levels. There ain't exactly that many 6ft Chicanos in Scandinavia, and even fewer (if any?) that end up in tiny, woodsy towns with a pleasantly grizzled look and strange clothing, backpack, and smell. On the bus/train I will read the free newspaper to catch up with current events.
The coffee and chocolate bar, if I can get it, is just a warm up. When I get back to dense civilization, I literally eat whatever I want at the time at places I know and like. Most of the time it's Max Burger for a big burger, onion rings, soda (one of the few times I drink soda too is post-hike), and then a milkshake or soft serve ice cream. Or authentic Thai place for some chicken pad Thai--because Sweden has excellent and plentiful Thai places (with real Thai people cooking), obviously. Yes, I'm serious, and no I don't really know the full extent as to why.
When I get home greet the family, hot shower, and I too like to then immediately put most of my gear away.
