Article Summary:

I truly enjoy the challenge of lightweight backpacking and the beautiful experience that comes along with it. This passion of mine involves a lot of numbers. I have a digital scale that gets a workout as I prepare for a trip. Anything that goes into the pack is weight, including food. I've taken a razor blade to my backpack, and trimmed away every little bit of excess that is not absolutely essential. I put the same diligence into my food prep.

Looking at your food and planning how much to carry on an expedition is a real-deal skill, just like pitching the tarp for a windy night.
