Lol. Donít wanna pack cast iron? 😉

My Firebox has a grill plate too so I can bbq a steak and itís all titanium so itís light enough to pack.

A small portable grill doesn't take up much room and doesn't weigh that much. Just set it over the fire to grill that chipmunk, or squirrel for dinner. It is also nice to have a flat spot to sit a cup on over the fire.

On the MRE's watch which one you get, some need water.

Problem with MRE's is they're not always readily available, and have gotten super expensive lately. If I had any though, id probably shove at least one into my pack. I've never had a problem with them. I've eaten quite a few to say the least.

Yeah, I was going to say "MRE"

Before packaged dehydrated meals became popular I used MREs. Loved em, still do.

Always carried an apple for every day...still do.

I get thinking this way sometimes, but the thing is about water is that it affects everything you do, including energy levels and your mental state. I stopped trying to budget water a long time ago and always take a little more than I could need because of some unfun trips a bit back, but also because I got to thinking about what would happen if I broke an ankle or developed a bleed when I was already dehydrated.

That said, why not work the problem into the solution? Take meals with the water already in them, those Omeals pouches are pretty good and they have self heating deals like MREs. There's always bulk order MREs from sites like BePrepared.com....and calorie bars of course.

Carry an apple and a little bag of carrots. Also, you can buy empty plastic squeeze tubes (with an open end). Add peanut butter and jam (or honey) into the tube, and put the clip on the end. You can have PBJ wraps or just squeeze the mixture into your mouth. You get both slow and fast burn fuel.
