Life in a box….

20 May
2012

Given that the Freedom Challenge is an unsupported event, and 2400 km’s long – each competitor is allowed to send a 2 litre container of provisions to each overnight stop. The box predominantly contains food and medical supplies, with the odd box filled with bike service parts.

Given my celiac disease these boxes are even more critical as I cant eat the sandwiches/vetkoek that most overnight stops will provide as padkos.

My average 2l box contains the following:

  • Maps/narrative for next stage

Food:

  • mixed nuts
  • dried mango
  • GU chomps
  • GU effervescent tabs 
  • assorted sweets
  • tinned chicken or tuna
  • Hammer recovery shake
  • future life energy meal
  • Woolworths gluten free protein bars

Medical:

  • Vit C & Cal Mag Zinc tablets
  • Detol liquid
  • Sudacrem
  • second skin plaster for saddle blisters
  • Mark II saddle cream
  • Aqueous cream

Bike:

  • Squirt lube
  • Duct tape
  • Sunlight liquid – cleaning bike, chain, clothes
  • Batteries for lights

At the half way mark I have also packed the following bike parts for replacement if needed (I will be carrying other spares in my pack):

  • Chain
  • Brake pads
  • Bottom bracket

I am sure I will lust after something on the trail that I wished I had packed, but here’s hoping that I have got the basics covered – the rest will have to be found in spaza shops!
