Re: [John Muir Trail] Re: Food Advice
- I used Mountain House ProPack meals and breakfast meals. Six of each. I also had instant coffee thrown in there and ClifShots, as well as hygiene gear. I would recommend only taking the amount of food you need to get to your resupply point, but if you won't be hitting one, I guess your stuck. I recently used the BearVault 400 (the big one) and loved it.

You won't go wrong with pepperoni salami as a sausage.
I carry sausage salami for all my distance (and short) hikes. It seems
to keep indefinitely, probably a combination of it being sealed in its
own 'skin', the only exposed piece being the surface left after taking
a slice and also likely due to the preservatives in it!
The old mix of nuts/raisins is also nutritious and doesn't need
preparation - though I tend to tire quickly of nut/raisins but can
never get enough of the salami!
