Food packing well under way - dehydrated and vacuum packed, ready for use.
For the 5 month journey I will need over 450 separate meals, plus heaps of snacks and nibbles. Some of this can be purchased in the many small towns I will pass through walking the length of NZ, but most will need to be prepared in advance and re-located in food drops up and down the country. To date I have dehydrated, measured and weighed about 245 separate meals, most of which have been vacuum packed to preserve their shelf life.
