TRT – The Consumables

Here, the consumables are divided into 4 categories.

  • Main meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner),
  • Drinks (hot drinks & electrolyte tablets,
  • Snacks (jerky, gels, sweats, GORP etc.) and
  • Other (suncream, toilet paper etc.)
Main Meals

Most dehydrated food (we mostly used we use Mountain House) comes for 1 or 2 persons, we were a party of 3.  This added a little complication and we ended up buying 3 foil packs for 2 people and redividing it into 2 zip-lock bags for 3 people. These zip-lock bags were then combined into a lok-sak bag to keep the odor down for the bears. This cut down on packaging, trash and having to divide-up food on the trail. For breakfast and our favorite raspberry crumble, a multiple portion bucket worked out much more economical.

Drinks

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate plus Nuun electrolyte tablets.

Snacks

Beef jerky, Sweets

Other

Mozzie spray, Batteries, Fuel, Hand sanitizer, Toilet paper, Suncream
