@Rob6 Yeah, the US is overly cautious on refrigerating eggs, makes me wonder how old they are when they get to the store. I used to have a flock of chickens (until the raccoon population decided to kill them all) and we only wiped the crud off the eggs with a dry cloth and never refrigerated them. I don't carry anything that isn't dry except for what I'm drinking, and even fresh eggs are considerably heavier than powdered. I know that I CAN take eggs, fresh meat, and fruits to use the first few days, but I just don't want the extra weight.
