Track Food

You will need something to eat between breakfast and tea ! You may not be in hut for lunch and it might not be possible to even boil a billy. Track food needs to be at the top of your pack, easy to eat and nourishing.

Scroggin: Hard to beat your own mixture of nuts/dried fruit/chocolate/sweets. Carry a bit more for emergency food. Some people mix it all together, others keep it separate.

Cheese/Salami/Crackers. Bring your favourite but weigh out what you need. Don’t bring a kilo block of cheese when you will only eat 150gm over 2 days. Don’t forget a knife that can cut the stuff.

Fresh Fruit: Nice but heavy. Remember 90% of fruit is water. Bring dried fruit and use the water around you.
