pre-rinsing lentils

hi everyone. i'm going hiking this weekend and i want to take red lentils to cook on my little gas stove while i'm camping because they are nutritious, filling and light to carry. my dilema though is that i know that you really need to rinse red lentils ten times or something. i don't think that i'll have that much clean water or time, so could anyone tell me if i can rinse them before i go? i'm worried that they'll get all moldy or something, so is there some way to avoid that or is it just not a good idea to pre-rinse lentils???

(i already looked in the FAQ and did not find what i was looking for)
