    RJ was wondering what I was talking about _ I dug it up...
    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    WAY too heavy, too expensive, there are an infinite number of better options. You can get 3000 calories/day from 1.5 lbs of trail food per day at half the cost or less.
