Each cooking group will cook 2 or 3 meals for the larger group. Thus reducing the number of stoves and pots and work making food!
Equipment and packing
Please take a read through the packing list. Covenant Bay has packs that you may reserve if you do not have one or don't feel confident in your own pack. Please ensure that your equipment and pack are adequate. It is difficult if not impossible to repair anything that breaks or simply is not working well. Try not to exceed 20% of your bodies weight for your pack weight. This means a 200lb man should try to keep his pack under 40lbs. If you are overweight than you will need to adjust the formula to ensure fatigue does not become an issue on the hike.
