I absolutely love to hike! I go camping every summer, as often as possible, one month me, my dad, and my uncle planned for a four day hike, got the stuff together, and I’m addicted. Was a wonderful hike quite literally out in the middle of no where, rained the whole time, ran into a few cayotes, had an odd run in with a guy out for the weekend at his hunting lodge…well, anyway, I loved it. So next week I’m taking Thursday and Friday off school, to go on a three day hike. I’d like to know if anyone has got good trail mix ideas, if you know of any good freeze-dried food products (without meat), or any other food items that don’t take up much space, but have lots of energy. Help would be much appreciated.
Fruits, nuts, and the like are fine, skeptical. If you hadn’t said you had used this diet before, though, I would offer a caution. That diet, expecially if your system isn’t used to processing it, can lead to a very active digestive system when combined with unaccustomed excercise.
Wish I had good suggestions. Mountain Home used to work for me, but without meat . . . ? Anyway, my trail mix was a variable combination of Snickers and Peanut M&Ms, plumped out with peanut butter on French rolls. And an occasional Slim Jim, but that’s meat again. Let me know what you come up with.
