Here's my all-time favorite trail mix recipe to take on hiking and backpacking trips. I like my trail mix on the salty side, so it's heavy on the nuts. Add more fruit if you like yours sweeter.
1 cup Planter's Nut-rition cashews, almonds, and macadamia nuts
1/4 cup Snyder's mini pretzels...
I just bought a food dehydrator, it cost $80 has 5 trays, adjustable thermostat and a fan. I like to eat good food while out on the trail, fresh food is good but heavy and will spoil with out proper storage, "prepackaged dehydrated food" is EXPENSIVE and taste like $hit!
The first batch consists...
Although this might not be the most healthy food setup, it has worked for me and my usual groupe of 4 for many camping trips.
- I take 1 to 2 cans of beans with the lid that peals off( i once had the pleasure of opening the can with a machetie. not fun or clean)
- Then I place the next to or...
I haven't made venison stroganoff for years, and will be coming into some venison soon. I can find lots of recipes online, but I thought I'd check with you folks for some really good ideas....maybe not stroganoff, even. What's your experience with venison, camping or not?
Do tell your favorite...

Has anyone ever built one?
Mix one 8 ounce package of cream cheese with two packages of your favorite instant pudding (they make cheesecake pudding, by the way). My favorites are pistachio or banana cream. The cream cheese will be a lot easier to mix if it is room temperature. Because cream cheese is a fairly high acid...
I read a post online and found that's really interesting and funny. Wish you guys would like this.
"It's as easy as buying a reuseable equipment kit (about $65) and the "juice box" (starting at $55) at a brew/wine supply store. I invest an hour every week or two for a month and end up with 30...
The secret ingredient in Banana Nut Bread Pudding is bread crumbs. Dry and light to carry, bread crumbs absorb the sweet juice created when you gently cook banana slices and sugar in water.
I know it looks like mush in the photo, but trust me; you'll eat it and ask for seconds. ...
I was just sitting here thinking about Trail food...and I've come to the conclusion...If you have a FoodSaver and a dehydrator, the sky's the limit. What ever you have left over from Dinner that night, you can dehydrate and vaccume-pack with the use of the fruit-roll-up trays. If you have a...
Has anyone gotten to try out the freeze dried foods from Freeze Dry Guy? Is it any good? A friend of mine gave me a head's up of this contest where they are giving away $250 worth of freeze dried food for free. Since that's gonna be quite a lot of free freeze dried food that I can take on my...
Hey all, a camping/backpacking newbie here who was hoping to get some advice from fellow packers. At the end of October I am going on a three day trip with a friend to Cumberland Island in Georgia. It's my first outing and right now we are working on ideas for meals on the trip. I currently have...
Our old tent the Licata is dead.
It was ideal for us. Had happy trips around Europe in it.
Been searching all weekend for a replacement , got headaches thinking about what to get.
Then I saw the Outwell Nevada L is the same tent just improved.
I was thinking of getting something else but...

Poor Excuse for Mexican Burritos
1 can straight chicken chili (use a plastic baggie and re-cycle the can at home)
1 can Trader Joe's no fat black beans(use a plastic Baggie transport)
Most hikers & backpackers that I know start dinner off with instant soup. In fact, I consider soup to be one of the best part of the whole meal, especially on a cold day. It's easy to make, easy to clean up, and it helps fill the empty spot at the bottome of my stomach. Ramen noodles are...

Oil/butter/margarine as indicated on the package.
1 handful of pine nuts
Backpacking food can be difficult to pack. You generally have a limited amount of space, plus not very many cooking options. Carefully consider what cooking tools you’ll have as well as your available food storage when packing your backpacking food. Be smart about the type of food that you...
The most handy food you can have while backpacking is the food mother nature provides you. It's everywhere and more abundant than most realize. With a little education and knowledge on wild edibles you can have a full meal without packing any food at all!
As an example, over most of the North...
Preparation is key. The most common mistake hiker's make is bringing too much food for short trips and too little food for long trips. Writing up a meal plan is the best way to make sure you won't forget anything crucial as well as making the actual meal preparation simpler. Write out...
