FIL and BIL are hiking the Appalachian Trail this Spring.

They are oblivious to MH and intend to rely a lot on ramen.

Thanks

Up here in CT I get the best deals on MH at Eastern Mountain Sports, when they have sales.

Watch the website for sales, right now MH and Backpackers Pantry are 20% off if you buy 12.

You just missed the January sale, the next one is the first week of April. If I were them I would buy some # 10 cans and prepackage my own meals in mylar bags. Seems like the end of the year most places run a 50% of sale.

Might check Ready Made Resources, that was the best deal going when I bought my last supply and they were GTG.

Nitro-pak has deals going for a lot of cans right now.

Thanks all. I remember seeing sales November/December, but wasn't aware of their trip until recently.

Above is precisely what I was thinking for them. Get a sampler to confirm what they like and then grab a number of number 10s and repackage.
I'm not that familiar with all the MP options. My dehydrated stuff is primarily components for meals - not complete meals themselves. I haven't done any real backpacking in over 10 years.
BIL is going to be on the trail for 4-5 months. We may be drop-shipping supplies to him along the way.
FIL is easier - he's going going to join for the first 2-3 weeks.

Good thread. If I was going on the 4 month stroll, I'd do some serious planning. I'm just trying to give these guys some options beyond Ramon.
