What I have done with the 60 litre barrel is take cardboard and trim it to make a divider that fits inside the barrel to separate it into three compartments. Then I separate the foods into whatever I want. Usually one for brekky with the coffee and such and another for all the spices and utensils and such. I love the bag idea with all the compartments. Maybe one of the ones that goes on the back of a car seat ???

I personally have gone away from dehydrating for shorter trips up to a week now. I take potatoes, carrots, onions with me and cook fresh. Flour for bannock too. I do tend to use a lot of jerky though. And dried hamburger meat for stews and chili. The dried meat and fresh veggies are a nice touch. Gravy mixes help a lot too. Nothing like fried tatoes and pickerel for supper.

One thing I WOULD like to find is a utensil roll to keep them all handy and easy to access.

Looks pretty neat, practical and the price is right.

But in my case, I have a solution already that works for my set-up. I use a zipped freezer bag (large) to hold the utensils - it's see-thru, washable, holds the stuff for up to six people and "rolls" to be as small as possible. No heavy wear on the bag as I have hardly any metal in there. Spoons etc are plastic, and depending who's coming along, chop sticks replace forks and knives.

Pretty easy to make one out of old jeans or any number of materials. And it could be customized.

My SIL made us one with a tea towel like in Barbara's link 7 years ago. It is starting to get thin, and we plan to make another soon. They work great.
