The weather is still not coming to the party so Team Gallagher continues to dance in circles on the ocean waves (see photo) leaving the crew with little to do other than rest and eat.
The key energy-providing products are Mother Earth nuts, dried fruit and muesli bars. Next on the agenda is Whittakers Almond Gold and Peanut Slab chocolate bars. However, the staple is Alison Holst cereal and the super light weight Back Country Cuisine freeze-dri. The latter normally requires rehydration with water and a burst on the gas cooker to make palatable.
Unfortunately, the lads have run out of gas to heat the food so have resorted to heating the freeze dri by filling the bag with water, holding it in ones armpit for an hour before eating it at lukewarm body temperature. Sounds delicious!
Our thanks to those great New Zealand brands for supporting the campaign!
