    I break apart MREs and mix and match the best contents. Plus peanut butter packs, protein water mix, trail mix, Special K protein bars and chewing gum. And, everything double sealed in zip lock bags. The MRE foods are already sealed up tight. Almost forgot, Starbucks VIA instant coffee packs. It's better than brewed.

    Wife and I are not too fussy about what to bring on dayhikes.

    But, more often than not, there is the following...

    PBJ
    Water
    Mini Clif Bars
    Drink mix (Gatorade, Tang, or Iced Tea)
    Home made trail mix
    and banana or apple

    No peanut butter for me I don't particular care for it....so for a day hike a normally carry the following:

    ---Stinger energy chews & honey packs
    ---Granola Bars
    ---Energy Bars
    ---Some kind of protein like beef, venison jerky or a Tanka Bar
    ---Organic Trail Mix

    It can vary depending on weather conditions,etc.

    Armando, I like the idea of beef/jerky. Will have to add that to my list.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I am not a beef jerky fan. But, have you tried buffalo jerky? A bit more expensive, but very good.

    Maybe we could have a MWO brand of buffalo jerky! Now, that would set us apart.

    Something like that could be sold in the gift shops, etc. (All this talk of jerky and trail food is making me hungry.)

    Snickers
    Apples
    Oranges
    Granola bars
    Fruit bars
    PB&J
    fruit snacks (small packages I can carry in my pockets)

    Ugh, I miss hiking....between this heat (ok, I am a wimp, lol) and hurting my leg....I've been stationary. Dull!! (and no excuse to eat Snickers)
