Now that I've more or less gotten my base pack weight down to what I consider "good enough" for now (about 5.5 kg...10lbs?...), I want and need to concentrate on the food that I carry. As a diabetic using insulin this is of particular concern, since I have to worry about always having the right kind of calories just in case hypoglycemia hits (it's happened several times in the mountains, once when I just barely had enough food to stave off the effects long enough to get down off the montain), which means carrying emergency food supplies (=extra weight).
Besides wanting to learn as much as I can about the best nutrition I can get up in the mountains (here in Japan the Japan Alps especially), I want to get the weight as low as possible. I'd like to learn more about deydrating my food. I feel like I'm starting all over again with learning ultralight concepts...
Would anyone be able to recommend a good dehydrator (one that can take a lot of use)?
