[Cdt-l] Food Weight, ETC

I've found the same thing for me.  The first week or so of a hike I don't
eat very much - so I seem to always over pack.  The first overnighter or
few day trip after a thru hike always finds me carrying food home.

I'm starting to learn to pack less food that first week, more for the next
five, then really kick it up after that.

Other thing is I find I generally mess up on is not accounting for the
occasional meal you just happen to luck upon.
