My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

FB cooking and weight
Eric, Another good way is cook chicken breasts, cool, shred and dehydrate. They rehydrate fairly quickly and have way less sodium.
