    Man, after really reading up on dehydrating, I am sold on to dehydrating! There are some really good youtube videos and websites. I make a lot of my meals now from dehydrated items at home and you cannot tell - unless your really looking hard and have the eye for knowing.

    I make my own meals with the dehydrater
    from years of playing about with different meals i found out it's all in the way you prep it befor you dehydrate it...
    thats time to get a taste you like
    a good site to check out is dehydratetostore...she is really good and can give you all the info you would need to dehydrate your food properly
    i use both the dehydrater and the oven like hooch
    but...i'v also been known to hike in a steak here and there lol
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I'll have to give the dehydration another try for my trip to the grand canyon. I'm not carrying a steak down to phantom ranch...well maybe just one for the first night!

    I'll second the earlier post of TrailCooking.com. Sarah has some really tasty and easy to prepare recipes there. I think she's also a member of this forum.

    If you're more inclined to purchasing your meals you can try PackitGourmet. I've only recently started using them, but so far these meals have been FAR tastier than traditional dehydrated stuff. Highly recommended. I got an email a few days ago that they're shutting down for the holidays until December 2; but if you order today (November 18) you can get an extra 10% off by using coupon code TURKEY (I sure hope they don't mind me sharing this code!!!).

    I really cant eat most of the "pre made" meals, lets just say it doesnt "agree" with me...

    I've just got into the whole home dehydrating/vacuum sealing thing. I have had great success with spaghetti sauce. Much the same a doing fruit leather.

    I have found over the years of backpacking, with a little creativity (see weight) you can eat real good in the backcountry. A soft sided lunch cooler burried deep in a pack can keep most items cool/cold enough for a few days. Plan your meals ahead with defrost time in mind. Night ones "steak" goes in cold, night two's "chicken" goes in frozen, etc. Par-cook bacon at home, and finish quick in camp to save fuel, or fully cook and crumble up to add a little protien to any meal, you can never go wrong with bacon.

    Also check out some of the nutrition/bodybuilding sites- they have a wide range of protein enhanced drinks/shakes (powdered!)and bars that will keep up the nutrition for not too much weight cost.
    just a comment from the sidelines. KM

    Shouldn't this be in another section of the forums?
