Potatoes have gotten the short stick in the past few years, but there is something enduring about them for backpacking. The massive hit of potassium helps prevent painful nighttime cramps. Which, when it happens in a tight sleeping bag sucks beyond belief. But outside of that, there is something so comfort food-y about potatoes on the trail.
