thing on gels, but the rest of us will be out there a little longer. How long
do you think you could go about your normal routine (work, watch TV, etc)
eating nothing but gels? And then running in the mountains all night isn't
going to help your stomach either.
You don't need to buy food. The aid station food is very good. You don't
need to carry food between aid except maybe between Sherman and Grouse, where
you can just take a little food from the aid station. There is plenty of
water between aid stations so you can save some weight by not filling your
bottles. Believe it or not, Hardrock can be finished without crew, pacer, or
drop bags. (Well, I would have if I did not waste 7 minutes taking pictures).
