slightly off topic but maybe a good fyi for you all--Betty Crocker makes what I think is a great addition to dinner, most especially a trout dinner, or just a breakfast on its own--if you want to cook. I always bring a stove. I like hot food. It's a dehydrated hash brown mix that includes onions. All you have to do is add water, then heat and brown in a little skillet or pot. Butter or olive oil is optional, but I always add it with pepper and garlic powder. With oil you can cook them up nice and brown if you prefer them that way which I do. I don't know the carb count but I would imagine it's up there especially if oil is added. If you are a spud lover like I am this is not a bad way to go.

This is kinda my theory. I'm not much for carrying a bunch of cooking stuff i have to clean. I like to keep it simple and quick. Mountain House and bars, etc..........When I'm car campin its a different story.

I don't think I could bring myself to include Slim Jims in my larder on a trip. I used to eat them when I was a student, but never since hen.

If I wanted a fatty sausage to bring, I'd bring Columbo hard salami, or maybe some lap cheong (Chinese sausage.) I also like bringing cheeses.

Nuts are good, too, for nutrition, since they have healthy oils and proteins.
