Default Re: Camping/Trekking food

naaa, I could pay for a food drop-off but I don't think thats an authentic way to trek. Noodles, nuts, beef jerky, rice, mash potato, canned meat, porridge, a few freeze-dry meals is fine for me and shouldnt be too heavy. thanks for your help -certainly an improvement from just taking rice!

To be honest I dont eat much anyway and should be good for me to experience the 'art of hunger' now and then! The GOW is only 7 days so I guess I can see how that goes food-wise and make adjustments for the 20 day walk.

This sounds completely absurd. You're looking at carrying ~45 lbs in just food? Not to mention I think that number is somewhat conservative as you'll probably like to have some less dense foods at times which'll drive the weight up considerably. (dried fruit being very notable)

Get a drop off or work something out. Pack weight is probably one of the most important things when the fun factor of a trip is involved.
