MRE'sBack Country Camping-
Never have food in your tent
Do not leave food in a pack unless you are in the process of travelling from one campsite to another *Take all leftover food withyou....
Hang your food in a bag from a high tree limb far enough off the ground that animals can't reach it.
You are far from civilization and could be placed in dangerous situations with only the aid of your group and your equipment.
