Looks like I've got my meals planned out for this weekend's backpacking trip along the Appalachian Trail. I'll be eating warm breakfasts & suppers with cold lunches. I figure: I'll be hiking during the day anyway and won't want to stop to break out the stove. The Mountain House freeze dried meals I'm eating are pretty good actually. I'm looking forward to trying a couple new meals this weekend. Yep, considering these meals have a shelf life of 7 years, they pack good flavor, lots of valuable carbohydrates and (here's the best part) they weigh next to nothing. The average meal weighs a whopping 2.5 oz.

I agree, some of the MH meals are pretty good, however there are some that are evil...

Preparing food is the hardest part of the trip for me. I don't know why, but it just is. I much more enjoy getting all my gear together!

I did get a dehydrator for Christmas so I need to figure out how to work it...

Thanks! I haven't had an evil meal from Mountain House yet. Their chicken teriyaki is my favorite of mine with beef stroganoff close behind. The guys I was backpacking with this weekend were all eating MH meals.
