Using an electric food dehydrator such as the American Harvest models create excellent foods for cruising. For example, using very very lean hamburger, cooking it, then dehydrating the results make for excellent hamburger additive in chili. Like taking food out of the freezer to thaw, the same "timing" applies to dehydrated food which often needs many hours to re-hydrate. So, for example, I'd take the dehydrated hamburger out and put it in a plastic container with a top, add water, at around noon for an evening meal.

I've included some articles with "recipes" that can be used by cruisers; one article is written for canoeists:
