Illuvatar4, do you dehydrate your own ground beef? I found it commercially available one summer, but it must not have been a good seller as I've never found it again....
On another note, I use Leki trekking poles that have been extraordinarily valuable to me. My sleeping pad is a thermarest 3/4 length ultralite. I used to have a mid thickness full length that felt better for sleeping, but the bulk and weight and a rip after using it for 8 years led to the one I now use.
Hey! Thanks for the info! I keep running across recipes and suggestions on dehydring your own food. Any good websites I should check out for a reasonably priced dehydrator? I would love to dehydrate my own veggies and jerky without using my oven for 24 hours!

Hi! Welcome. I like my Atlas poles and my Big Agnes insulated air core sleeping pad. As far as recipies go, I eat oatmeal in the a.m., powerbar or granola for lunch, and dehydrated ground beef and Zatarains rice, lipton pasta side dishes, dehydrated spaghetti, or dehydrated soup mixes - all with dehydrated veggies. ~Howard
Hello! My new years resolution has been to hike each weekend (or try to) in 2007. So far so good! I've planned a few overnight backpack trips this Spring, Summer, and Fall and can't wait to get out there! I've got my pack, mummy bag, water filter, alcohol stove, cookware, boots, and recipes. I just need to get some trek poles and a good sleeping mat. All of the items above have been "rewards" to myself for each goal I have met. Look forward to posting and learning from everyone!
got any recommendations for poles, sleeping pads, or fun trail recipes to swap?
