That was more or less my thought. I never really cared for spam myself but I was looking for something to add to the mashed potatoes and ramen. I'm a pretty picky eater and it's so hard to find food that doesn't require much cooking.
Well, if you were totin' MRE's (pretty damn heavy at 1 lb each) try PACE pre-cooked pouches. I will carry them on a weekend trip, or for the first day of a long trip. Lots of flavor choices, can eat them cold if need be, and weigh less than 1 lb!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
