Dehydrating Food for the Trail

Considering a single serving of a prepackaged camp meal will cost $6-$14, dehydrating your own trail food will save you a lot of money in the long run.  Having a selection of dried veggies, fruits, meats, and grains will also add more nutrition and variety to your dinners.
