    I've also tried some freeze fried meals from Coleman. They're a single serving, resealable and have surprisingly good flavor with tons of carbs and protein. I think the last one I had was Cilantro-lime rice and pintos. That was good and I had plenty of energy to pack out a buck the next day. I believe I got them at Cabelas. They're worth a try.

    I love the PB and Bacon. Never used french toast but that is the most brilliant thing I have heard all day.

    Check the Hawk Vittles web site for an alternative to MH. I have not personally had a chance to try these but intend to on my scouting trips this year. Looks like they have a good variety and their prices seem to be competetive with MH. From the FAQ it looks like their single servings are enough for one person. Seems like with MH a double serving is really needed when your busting your hump in the backcountry.

    I like mountain house as well, but for snacks and breakfast I tend to bring a lot of Cliff Bars. They look like a turd but most taste pretty good and packed full of energy.

    I tried meals from here (www.trailcooking.com) this year. We cooked our "big" meal for lunch and used the Starkist Tuna meals for dinner or one of the cold options that didn't require boiling water after a long day chasing elk. These meals took up less space in the pack, weighed similar or less than equivalent MH and had great taste. We were pleasantly surprised and actually looked forward to the meals. Making your own meals added to the preparation of the hunt which is a fun part of the process for me.

    How long do the PB and Bacon sandwiches keep for you guys out in the field? I think as long as they are below 75 F things would be ok, but early in the season that isn't a guarantee.

    nothings better than a poptart before you chase elk all day...can't go wrong with jerky and cashews either.
