    what about lunch?

    I done a few backpack trips and I am always struggling to figure out what I should do for lunch. If I eat light and eat trail mix, granola and so on I get hungry pretty early. I really dont want to get the stove out and cook up a dehydrated meal. I was thinking about going to a italian deli and getting some real hard salami,slicing it and vacuum sealing for individual sandwiches. Then pack pita and mustard packets. I've heard of guys packing bacon also. How long would the salami last in a pack? What do you guys think any other ideas?

    Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches with honey, or dried salami and bagels. Also I like the tuna packs with crackers, or chicken in a can with crackers.

    I'm also a big fan of the peanut butter, bacon, and honey sandwiches on a bagel. It will last all week without any refrigeration.

    Count me in as another fan of PB & Bacon on a bagel. Depending on the trip and time of year, I also turn to a hard salami.

    I love dried and cured meats in the woods. A hard-boiled egg is also calorie rich. Of course carbs however you can get them. Bagels are great. Occasionally I will whip out the jetboil for lunch and make a quick cup-o-noodles.

    I tried the whole PB, bacon and honey thing on a tortilla, but I found that I really didn't get too hungry at lunch time. I preferred to just snack small throughout the day. I guess everyone is a little different, you kinda have see what else you're eating during the rest of your day. I had intentions of doing the tuna packets, but the smell and the garbage steered me away.

    RUTTIN - x2. The gallon size fits a days worth of food and makes for a good garbage bag.

    The peanut butter, honey and bacon on whole wheat bread is good, but requires lots of water to get down. I usually eat it the first day or two as I don't want bacon to be out for longer hunting in the heat of CA. I store it in a zip loc in the gallon size zip loc bag.

    We buy the pre-cooked bacon. Its light, easy, needs no refigerations, and it keeps the scent down. Between two of us, each pack last two days of lunches. We also get the Jif singles PB. They're just the right amount of PB. "Borrowing" some of the little honey packets from KFC works well also. Have done bagels, tortillas, and last season went to the flat buns. With the exception of the bacon, it all goes in the gallon bag that others have described.
