I can't camp with out it!
(salmon+pesto+Ramen=Awesome) <----This sounds amazing, I may have to borrow this recipe!!
For some reason I've heard of a lot of Bear attacks this year?!?! Mostly due to poor judgement on the meals (Person) part. In fact, at Red River Gorge, I place here in Ky, they passed new laws within the park that have you bury or hang your foods, and you cant cook where you sleep
I opted for the Ramen over the pita bread for weight, and pine nuts be damn expensive for trail food, so I left them off.
In all, it was one of the best backpacking meals I've ever had, and saved some weight and space.
I'm not a huge fan of dehydrated meals, so I try and find cool recipes like this whenever I can.
As for the bears, I always hang a bear bag when not car-camping, and unless I'm in a spot where I can make a fire to ward 'em off, I don't cook/eat/clean/brush my teeth/make poopy or anything else with a scent anywhere within 500ft. of my campsite. Bears are usually easily scared off (black bears, anyway) unless they're starving -- then you're boned.
