      Long Distance Backpacking--Any Celiacs Going Long Miles?
      I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2005. I love long-distance backpacking and completed the Colorado Trail in 2003. I'm heading out on the Colorado Trail again in a few weeks (500 miles) as a shake-down hike for a 2012 attempt on the Pacific Crest Trail (2,650 miles; April 2012). I'm comfortable with my gear, but always am looking for food options. I need LOTS of calories for as little weight as possible, so rice noodle soup is not going to cut it. I have seen people post things about quinoa (and have heard it can be dehydrated though haven't tried this yet). I've eaten Lara bars and like them, but would like to find something with even more calories per ounce.

      Any food suggestions for me? This is a 5 month hike and will require a LOT of food. Most of it will have to be shipped to post offices along the way as I won't be able to find gluten-free options in small towns.

      Also, I'm interested in whether anyone with celiac disease has hiked one of the long trails. I did read the blog of the "Breadless Horseman" who did the AT a few years ago--but his Mom put together all his food. I think literally dehydrated and constructed each meal. I don't have time for this. It would take me a month just to put food in little baggies! (Though I definitely am willing to do some food assembly--I do like some good tasting food).

      I'm interested in whether there was any different physiological effects hiking the trail with celiac disease... I think if your gut is healthy (mine is finally), it shouldn't be that different than anyone else doing it, but don't know as I haven't done a long trail with celiac disease yet.
