      yeah, I should have thought of that . . . they do have freeze dried ice cream . . . but then, why make it all the way to lone pine so I can hit mcdonalds at one end, the burger king shake at the other and the market in between, when I can just gorge on that freeze dried stuff. I don't do it for the challenge. I do it for the ice cream at the end of the trail. Astronaut ice cream?

      Jerky is my trail staple food as well, I never get tired of it, like I do with gorp after a few days. I will say, figure out different meal options - you'll get tired of instant oatmeal every morning, or at least I do. Anyways, for lunch, try whole wheat pasta or cheese and crackers (depending on your stance on crackers, I know some people hate them as trail food). My lunches are usually pretty light, just enough to keep me going until setting up camp and dinnertime.

      Oh and Bob, check out astronaut ice cream! http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/science/9e07/

      y'all gonna need some contemplatin' food . . . something you can sit there and chew and chew and . . . all the while taking in the beauty and mystery that it all is. I get sick of "power bars" about as soon as I buy (But the winner is, TIGER MILK BARS) them. My all-time favorite is beef jerky, which takes a good while to chew and I never seem to tire or lose my craving and, consequently, I just don't mind sitting there, breathing, being, seeing . . . my new favorite though, is sun-dried tomatoes--they're about the same chewy consistency as jerky, if not more so. You can get them at trader joe, usually in $3 bags . . . they also compress nicely in a bear can. I get the Jerky at costco. good jerky, best deal. I find that anything I eat, that hurries me along--as in, these power bars make me gag--just kind of detracts from the moment--but that's just me . . . now if I coud figure out how to get a few quarts of ultra-chocolate ice cream out there . . .

      Good Morning All,

      I'm coming up on my first JMT trip and am considering what foods to bring. I'm pretty well set for breakfasts (instant oatmeal packets & coffee) and dinners (repackaged freeze dried meals), but am wondering what suggestions those of you who have done the trip in the past would have for lunches.

      I'm thinking food that is quick and easy that can be eaten with as little muss and fuss as possible.

      Power bars, energy bars, foods that provide lots of calories to help replace what you lose during the day??

      Thanks in advance for your suggestions,

      Bill P.
