Stopping by the “Big Three” (AlpineAire, Backpacker's Pantry, and MountainHouse) booths this year resulted in a whooping four new dinner options for the discriminating backpacker. NOTE: In all fairness, there were two new desserts (at MountainHouse) and one new breakfast (at AlpineAire) but since I am only a seasoned user in the freeze-dried dinner market, that's my focus here.
