After looking at the "Groceries?" thread, I wondered if a trail food section would be appropriate. Obviously there are others here, like myself, who are just starting out and need a little help in the what food to pack area.
I canoe but have not hiked much, if you don't count four years of Army service. The Army experience has probably been more of a deterent to my getting out there as anything.
MREs were in their infancy then and canned rations on there way out. Neither, in my opinion, were very palatable. That and a heavy rucksack and uncomfortable heavy boots have did little to encourage future incursions.
I have already picked up a lot from you guys and think that this may be what it takes to get me off my duff and out there again.
We have seen a little of this happening already and I have found it extremely helpful.
