One pound of food? on 04/05/2005 22:33:15 MDT Print View

PA... Darn, I was hoping you were from Nor. Cal. :(
Ok, I'll bite... (Since I won't comment on your gear) 6lb of food for 6 days... Calories per day? May I ask what is your exact Food list. :)
If it is more than GORP and Oatmeal...
around 3000cals...
Post it, because I would love to know. I average 1.4lbs at 3000cals.
My 3d/2n "Dream" Super Ultralight Gear list is 4lbs 2.75oz w/fuel... and with your food and water it could be below 10lbs.LOL :D

No, my food is nothing beyond what you mentioned and not fancy (plus less calories needed). I am always keeping my eyes open for revolutionary food or dehydrated water :) Someday....:)
