    Use real pepperoni. When you have been hiking all day, any food is good, but that Hormel stuff is garbage.

    Appalachian Trail: Ramen noodles and high mileage…until you get to the next town. Eat it dry if you don’t want to carry fuel/cooker. Then once in town, consume nutrients in preparation for the next section. Repeat. Over and over and over again. Until you reach Maine. Yay!

    YAY! I love these pizzas! I didn’t know anyone else made these. These are a staple in my backpacking food repertoire. Seriously so, so good. When you’re camping everything tastes better, and these have to be like the best pizzas i’ve ever had.

    You could also use the string cheese snack sticks for kids. They are in vacuum sealed packages, would probably last a long time and easily pull apart into thin strings. Perfect for adding to a sandwich or pizza.

    I get the sliced pepperoni in vacuum sealed packages. It’s not refrigerated in the store and would probably last millions of years in an unopened package. Cheese will last awhile unrefrigerated. When I have a block of cheese that gets a little green & fuzzy I just cut that part off, the rest is fine. For this trip I picked up a package of shredded mozzarella at the store which lasted a few days in the summer just fine.
