So, I’ve been off the boards for a while, launching a new career as a teacher, buying a house and supporting my wife as she launched her new career as a nurse. In celebration of all of these big changes, we are going on our first international trip since our honeymoon, setting out to hike the Hadrian’s Wall Trail in Northern England. We leave on Friday, and I have a couple of questions that perhaps some of our U.K. members can answer.
I’m aware that it is not a wilderness hike, but we will be tenting it about 4 of the 6 nights we are planning for the hike, and I’m interested in eating breakfast and lunch out of the rucksack. My wife and I are both good travelers (we eat what the locals eat and don’t get angry if there is no ranch dressing available) so if there is something that we should eat, I’d love to know what it is (i.e. a not to be missed local cheese)
Typically when backpacking, we’ll eat instant oatmeal with peanut butter, brown sugar, dried and dried fruit in it for breakfast, some form of trail mix while hiking and cheese, sausage dried fruit and crackers for lunch (and chocolate, of course) What are the equivalents to these that I can find in a typical British grocers?
Any other thoughts or info would be much appreciated.
