I am not going on this trip so feel free to ignore the following recommendation.

The meal rotation is a great idea. It actually saves time and saves food as much less seems to get wasted. On a longer trip (like this one) it also allows the off duty chefs to attend to vehicle needs without adding time in camp.

For you meal assignments I recommend pairing up dinner and breakfast with the same chef whenever you can. If you decide to base camp the "on deck" chef can organize things to his/her liking and even start getting things ready for the morning if desired without disturbing the evening chef. If you cruise, only one person needs to set up a kitchen at each camp. This will save time and energy.

Aaron:

Sorry that you can't make this trip. Very good advice however. I very much like the idea of pairing up with the same co-chef. Thanks!
