    As I'm planning a 4-day back-country hike in Yellowstone this fall, I decided it's time I start planning what to do about food. Towards that end, I had two boxes show up at my door this morning. One had an Excalibur 3526TB dehydrator and the other a Weston 65-0501 vacuum sealer.

    Now to relearn how to cook......... specially with dehydration, non-refridgerated shelf life, vac sealing and rehydrating in the sticks in mind.

    You are going to need a bear proof container. But hey... Welcome to Wyoming... When you get here that is.

    Already have a bear vault. And spray. And paracord.

    I'm also going to enjoy the Wyoming Wind Festival. You know, the one that runs from January 1 to December 31.

    The natives probably never notice it until it hits 40.

    Sadly true. But really... It's worse in the Southeastern part of the state. Yellowstone isn't that bad.

    Are you packing a camera? I would assume so, but I'm also sure you are considering cutting weight somewhere if you are going on a back country 4 day hike.

    My first choice will be my Nikon P7100. If I can shave enough pack weight to take the D600 /28-300, I'll take that. But there's no way I'm lugging the 200-500.

    I know. I've spent a lot of time around Guernsey and Ft. Laramie over the past half century.

    Are you getting ready for the Big Event next August?
