Episode 55: Shaving Food Weight on the Appalachian Trail

On this episode we explore how to use your body to save weight in packing your food for the first 100 miles of your Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Then we bust the myth on cold soaking your food, reviewing what value it may or may not provide. Does “Cold Soaking” really save weight?

What we talk about:

  • Your body is a piece of gear, don’t forget that
  • How many calories does it take to burn a pound?
  • Good Fat…is good
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly is really good for you
  • Cold Soaking weight VS Scott’s stove weight
