Nice. Must be awesome to be able to eat those kind of meals in the backcountry instead of Pasta Roni and oatmeal! (I kid; I love eating that stuff when backpacking).

I've done many a meal on freeze-dried backpacking food, including 6 weeks in the Sierras on and around the John Muir trail back when one did not need permits and reservations. Now, in our late 60's, we still are strong hikers but love the opportunity to get into the backcountry without carrying a heavy pack. So we love the HSC's. The food in nice ( fresh instead of freeze - dried) and the bed off the ground is nice, but the best part is the camaraderie and friends you make in the camps. It is always great. Normally we have to wait and cobble something together from the extra space they post later, so it is nice to have it all sorted early and we can go ahead and make our summer plans now.

Bug repellent, check! We like the Lemon Eucalyptus kind. Or wearing a "bugs-Off" shirt. I hate DEET!

Hopefully they won't be bad in late July.
