Prepping 575 Munchie Bags, with total weight 460 kg to be shared among 14 novice Arctic Adventures (The Polar Race 2009)

Chapter 3 “Live a Life to Die For” by Roger D

After a delicious breakfast, we broke camp loaded our pulks and set off walk/ski. Our next hot meal would generally be 12 hours later.

It’s a long day, during the walk/ski I would occasionally dip into the Munchies bag and treat myself.

We stopped every hour for 5 minutes to hydrate and drink from our flasks that’s when I really attacked the munchies bag.

All the contents were frozen together and you would break bits of the goody clump. Pop one in and it slowly thawed in your mouth

Every mouthful a surprise: example – mango followed by cheese, then salt walnut, or chew into Pepperoni maybe next frozen cube of vanilla Fudge; the eclectic mix caused wonder and havoc to your taste buds.
