    Risen, probably best hiking/camping food I know of is the Cliff Bar.

    They're like energy bars made with organic ingredients and soy beans and one bar is the equivalent of an entire meal. They pack almost 300 calories.

    I eat them ALL the time when I hike and they give you noticable energy, are very good for you, and quench hunger. They're cheap, and you could easily fit 20 of them in a backpack with all the other stuff.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    How much would 20 cost?

    Clif bars are great. I've never used them for backpacking but I give them to my kids for breakfast when we oversleep.

    Oddly, I collect cliff bar rappers. I never collect stuff, but I decided to keep them. I have over 60 and the other day I poked holes in them, took some hemp string, and strung them up around my room. thought I'd share that with ya'll.

    My mom was the consummate packer! Haha!

    So, on my previous trip I took some trail mix, raisins, italian dry salami, gouda and provolone cheese, tortillas, banana bread, etc. I've gotta say, the salami, cheese, and tortilla combo is pure win. Delicious, salty, and energizing. Definitely doing that every time i go backpacking, but I think I'll replace the gouda for a different type of cheese, probably jack. The cheaper gouda I picked up didn't taste good to me, though I did try some elsewhere that had a great bacon taste to it.
