So here's the thing. From my last posting, I 'consumed' a great deal of knowledge from all of the people that helped to inform me, and each other, about packing enough food for an expedition on the outer coast and how to do it. I expect that I will use most of the ideas, to various degrees, on my August 4 week trip. The real problem for me is what to do in the 3rd and 4th weeks with no pit stop along the way to re-stock. What foods can I use that will last so long beyond more dehydrated stuff? What strategies have you guys used, along with fishing, to provide enough sustenance for such a hefty adventure? I am not at all fussy about what I eat but I know that I need calories; fat, carbs and protein every day. I am pretty good at using the environment to supplement my diet. Salal, thimble, salmon and huckleberries are abundant in August and so are dry wild peas and lots of other things to make meals and snacks out of. But there's a limit to that. I lost a lot of weight during last summer's 2 week trip and probably wouldn't be keen on losing twice that much on a 4 week trip. I would welcome any advice and information on this.
