If your food rations keep you going even at 1.1lbs per day, thatís great. I know would not have the energy and drive without the extra fuel!

Thanks guys, and other suggestions for what else to add? Jerky comes to mind but anything else? I definitely will have to add more. The last two scouting trips I brought a couple extra bars per day. Having only 2000-2500 is calories is ok for a day of two but I'm sure after that I would be feeling tired.

Peanut butter, bacon, and honey on raisin bread...generous portions. Look at calories when you buy your bread and use thick cut bacon. The raisins keep your bread moist and the sandwiches will be fine for a week unrefrigerated. You can work them to about 1200 cals each. 2x per day, plus a generous cup of Costco trail mix for 1000 cals, plus a couple protein bars and a few other packable snacks. Heavier than some foods, but no jet boil required...
Instead of coffee I take a pre-workout with caffeine - mtn ops yeti in green apple tastes decent first thing in the morning.

This is for early season, will take mr noodles and a jet boil late season, along with some tea bags. Still use preworkout for coffee, it helps get my arse going in the morning lol.

When I used to ultra-run this is very close to what I would take for big runs. Peanut butter sandwiches, salted mini-potatoes with bacon, trail mix, and some kind of bar for when I needed a quick pick-me-up and maybe some chocolate or whatever for fun.

Would also have some kind of electrolyte whatever in my water like a little gatoraid, coconut water, or nuun tablets.

Here's a tip I wish I would have thought of a long time ago.
I'm always uncertain of how much fuel to bring for my stove. So I started just scratching a tally mark on the fuel canister after each time I boil. When the cans run out I'll be able to know how many boils I get from the different size canisters

Ithe wouldn't work well if you cook food, but all I do is boil water and usually about the same amount each time.

As a general rule, a 100 gram fuel can, boils 12 litres or maybe 900 ml of water, thats my info from past trips
