I know a ton of dudes who go the dehydrated route but we tried a different route with these and complemented them with some pesto pasta sides or wild rice which were divine out there on IR. It was only minimal added weight but well worth it for a quick snack, lunch or even dinner.
I did bring one Mountain House meal left over from our trip last July to Glacier but could barely eat it as Ive grown tired of them.
I spent around 30 bucks for my IR trip and for stuff while traveling to Copper Harbor. We never felt starved and kept it super cheap to eat as good as you can way out there on IR's beautiful trails and campsites.

I believe you backpack alone for at least two other reasons.I slice open two edges with scissors, turn them inside out, and lick them clean! (This is another reason it's a good thing I backpack alone.)
1. You are fiercely independent.
2. There are not a lot of people who could keep up with you and your backpacking pace!
