Interest: I love to be in the out doors. I live in the GREAT state of Oregon so i am always outside. i have done a few 50 mile week long hikes and really enjoy them. I am always looking for ways to lighten my pack at little cost.
I am a boy scout who is very active. I hope to have many more years enjoying the forests. This summer I plan to hike the Oregon section of the PCT.
my whole idea was to have a little fun and save a little money. the soups from a can are a lot less expensive than predehydrated soup. And they are a whole lot less expensive than Mountain House. (Is any thing more expensive than Mountain House) I just bougth the plastic trays for my dehydrator that allow me to use liquids and i will use those. I am thinking that i could use one of those just add water soup consentrates, there is no point in getting the ready out of the san soups. i am just going to be taking the water out any ways.
One more question, if i use a soup with meat, how safe will it be and how long can i store it. i have never worked with meat before. does it have to be refrigerated?
