So here is the bottom line... the cheaper I can keep this trip, the more my wife will be agreeable to me doing more of them. I'm sure others out there have heard this as well "How much are you spending on this trip just for you??" (And yes, I know, the same can be said from husbands to wives that are going.)

So I am looking at what to do to cut down where ever possible, and now I'm at the food portion. I figure I can bring the following:
  • trail mix
  • instant oatmeal
  • canned tuna
  • powdered drink mix
  • beef jerky

Any other thoughts? I don't have any kind of jet boil so I will be using hot water for tea from the coffee station I guess.
