    I think Beef Tallow is the way to go. It's shelf stable and easily transported. What about warming the tallow until it is liquid and then "soaking" a bouillon cube in it. Or, mix powdered (packet) bouillon with it and then reform into a cube or similar. Pack in plastic wrap in individual portions. Just a thought.

    We'll be coming down probably around Memorial day to nip off the section of Mt. Rogers we missed on our spring break hike. We will definitely look you up for a shuttle. Then I'll buy you a round or two at the BB that evening if you want.

  • Oh indeed! For a bit of easy punch, you can put the oats in the blender and it will reduce them to a slightly grainy oat powder. This is the secret to Mrs. Fields Cookie recipe. Bread pudding can be done the same way except with dried fruit in the "pudding." A bit of vanilla really helps it along but bread crumbs as a pie/cobbler/pudding base can be very effective.

    A little late to the party today... We had: Warm Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting at oh, let's say, 8:00 to open stockings with the little ones. Then it was on to Cheese Souffle with home cured bacon, kitchy mini sausage links from the store (ok, I admit it, I love those little things), and home roasted coffee. If I could convince my family, I would totally go with the shrimp and grits. Delicious! And yes, I've made them myself, even cooked down the shrimp shells for stock. …

    Quote from namtrag: “HB and Storm, that's one place my wife and I don't carry too much...in fact, when we go on our 2 1/2 day trips (basically Friday evening to Sunday), I am always starving on the Sunday midday hike back to the car. We typically carry two "meals" for each day, and a morning and afternoon snack. Never enough for me lol I do think we are making strides in lightening the weight of our food though. We used to carry cheese and sausage, for example. Now we have begun dehydrating our …

    Snowing like a bandit out our way. Have about 3 inches so far and still coming down steady. Prolly wind up with 5 or 6. More plowing for me to do this evening. More fun with the tractor.

    Quote from hikerboy: “franconia ridge is perhaps the best stretch of the entire at if the weather is good.the carters are almost as good as the mahoosucs, and the presidentials are, well the presidentials.” Franconia Ridge was hands down the favorite of all of us on our Whites hike this summer. We enjoyed all the Whites immensely and, when it rained, just chose to bum around town and enjoy the low-life since the high-life was obscured by clouds and supremely uncomfortable in the rain. We get to …
