"It seems however, that we cannot walk on water and in the end our feet were sloshing around inside our boots. "

 ;D That is the norm for that area, lovely when it is dry  :)

I have a de-hydrator, I find their great for drying fruits not bad for vegetables but I've never had any success with meats. Even at their best they're not as good as freeze dry and vegetables dried this way take longer to re-hydrate. You really need to leave them soaking for an hour or so before cooking.
I'm planning on going for a week in Knoydart soon, I'll be taking;


For breakfast, porridge with freeze dried berries https://www.healthysupplies.co.uk/freeze-dried-fruit.html milk powder and sugar added. This comes to 185g and 500kcals per day. Plus lemon tea.


For mid-day snacks, rye bread 50g or 2 slices per day. two tubes of squeeze cheese for the week.   
40g of flap-jacks and 60g of dried fruit (apples, bananas, pineapple and kiwi fruit) per day. that works out as an average of 190g per day I'm not sure what calories.


 For evening meal a bewell meal, I know their expensive but I buy a couple each month to spread the cost. When I go away for a week or two backpacking I don't stop, I want to be out in the hills not shopping. Because of this the wet food packets like LWIF would just be to heavy. They're also quite heavy on gas as they need a lot of heating, whereas with freeze dry you just need to bring your water to the boil, stir it in and leave.

you can buy various camo pattern or plain coloured cover tubes to cover the blue drinking tube to keep it camouflaged for when you are stealth camping. [/size]

I think people would see you before they saw the tube, do you wear camo clothes too  :D
