I still think the hermetically sealed traveler is possible, however there is a problem with just having a mass of food. Chocolate vanished first. I inherited a really cool Trangia alcohol stove. The first night I cooked up a really nice dinner and spent an hour cleaning up. @#$% Used the JetBoil after that. I love that Trangia and looks like it will cook some really nice meals. At a base camp. Not for the trail. I'm not out there to cook or eat, if I wanted all the comforts of home I would have stayed there. If I was full time on the road, yes, I would take more time and cook better meals. But when you are on a journey time is something you might want to spend on something other than housekeeping. Also, why would someone carry dehydrated food and then carry the water to re-hydrate it? Cans work pretty good and already have water added, cook faster, lots of variety. So jet boil + cans was the preferred choice for all my meals and all delicious grains and seasonings just sat there waiting. I had learned the lesson of taking all your food in the highest water weight when I spent more time in the desert. Water was not available at campgrounds so I carried it all and refilled with gallons at the fuel stops. I just had different habits when travelling in the mountains versus desert. Now we kind of need a desert mentality to navigate this brave new world we live in. Another thought... You have all mostly been harangued, nagged, pestered and insulted by people urging you to lose weight. Yeah it's mostly a good thing for stuff like life expectancy and health. But there is a dark side. At the urging of physicians I lost maybe 40 pounds. Yay! But... It does not come off proportionally. First thing, my ass fell off. Flat. Bony. Now imagine that you, a lover of nature, are wandering in a beautiful primeval forest and everybody knows the best seats in the forest are logs lying there just waiting for you. Imagine the heartbreak of plopping that freshly bone filled ass of yours on a hard old log and realizing that something precious and personal has been lost. Proceed cautiously ladees and gemmuns.
