The links below will direct you to resources that were mentioned in the presentation by Project 42ude’s Alice and Rachel Hill at Portland REI, 6.30pm on June 19th 2013.

We used the following budget for an MSR Whisperlite stove to allocate our fuel allocation:
summer: 0.25L/stove/day
winter/snow camping: 0.6-0.75L/stove/day

To maximise cooking efficiency and bake tasty treats (including bread, scones and biscuits) we used a Frybake – available at: frybake.com – and Pot Parka: backpackerspantry.com.
