2 Weeks.
#1
If you had to work at a remote camp site for 2 weeks and had to carry everything on your back what would you bring to eat? Water and fire are no problem.

How much time do you have before you leave?



Do you have a dehydrator? If so, check this place out for great recipes...

Dehydrated or freeze dried foods is the only way to go if you have to pack everything in, and water's not a problem.

If I had to worry about water I would be carrying at least a gallon.. since I don't have to I now have not only my usual food carry (10 pounds or so).. but an extra 9 pounds of food. That give me about 20 pounds of food! More than enough for 2 weeks.



My fare would be..



Homemade dehydrated soups (10 packs - 2 pounds)

Rice (1 pound)

Dehydrated Potatoes (1 pound)

Bannock (3 pounds)

14 Power bars (2 pounds)

Oatmeal (1 pound)

Dried milk (2 pounds)

Dried Butter (1 pound)

Power Drink mixes (1 pound)

Peanut Butter (1 pound)

Jam (1 pound)

Dried Fruit (3 pounds)

Honey (1 pound)

Spices (Cayenne, Sea Salt, Curry) (Negligible)



That along with wild edibles would suffice quite nicely and give me a lot of variety.

You can live for 3 Minutes without Air...

For 3 Hours without Shelter...

For 3 Days without Water...

For 3 Weeks without Food...

But you can't live at all without Faith!

The best way to carry "Dry Cheese" is to simply buy a small cannister of Parmesan Cheese. You can sprimkle or pour it right out of the container. When you finish it up.. the cannister makes a pretty useful carry can.



Good input Bro.. thanks for the additions

Ah, been mixing up BrE with AmE again. My bad.

Two high-protein sources for the price of one, though the TVP needs some "hiding" under a luscious

sauce and a good helping of cheese. Not too fond of it myself, always think I'm chewing on a piece

of sea sponge.



Quote:Ramen Noodles.. YUK!



Substitute your favorite quick-cook pasta or even couscous (which is after all a pasta too).

That's indeed the one I meant. Didn't even know "dried cheese" existed before I set foot inside a Walmart in Canada (none in CH).

The concept would be a shooting offence *ooops, BrE* offense here in Switzerland.

Welcome, even though I forgot the most obvious (EDC) ingredient: bouillon cubes! <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blush.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Blush' />

Thanks everbody for your help and suggestions. Yall may recall Gomer Pyle USMC the tv show from back in the day. Every time I think of camping out ,the eposide with gomer and sarge were doing a survial course and they came back to base fatter than they left. Ol'gomer caught trout and a rabbit and found some wild tobbaco and rolled a couple of cigars. Sarge was digging for water and gomer just found a nearby stream. Funny the things you remember.

BTW I will be putting yall's advice to good use in the near future <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' /> Thanks again keep iy comming.
