Re: other than ramen
Yes, oven will work just fine! Pasta needs movement in lots of water to cook right - and also to avoid a starch out, unless the recipe is using said starch to provide a thick sauce ;-)

Re: Pricey Air Dried
Baked ramen used to be easier to find - but it was never popular. It was OK overall, but honestly, the fried type has a much different texture. Now then..... Chuka Soba noodles, sold in the Asia...

Re: need ideas- going "natural" on my long runs/hikes
You mean......"real food"? ;-) Just eat what you like. But don't overthink it. Personally, I like to actually chew my food, not drink it ;-)

Basically yes....it is dead. The big killer was last year when they took the "new site" look live and it was horrid. They apparently paid way too much for something that was designed for ...

Around 2 years ago, a pair of kids gaiters my son was using started fraying, so I emailed them to ask about repairs, since I live in the Seattle area. They instead sent me two pairs of the kids gaiter...
