Backpacking food

I've tried all kinds of systems for planning, preparing, and eating backpacking food.  At one point, I could tell you how many calories, how much fat, how much protein, yadda, yadda, for every part of my backpacking diet.

Useless.  Totally useless.

Old Army saying:  Doesn't matter how many calories you give a man if he won't eat it.

Absolute truth.  Start there.

Here's what worked for me, and what I'd like to try for future trips.
