    Me and John live on the South Downs National Park so we've decided to walk the South Downs way on our week off in May. This involves hiking 10-15 miles each day carrying all our camping stuff and wild camping along the way - for a week.
    I'm going to try and do it on the bars as shakes and soup won't be possible. I might have to add some food but if I can get away with it I won't. We'll have to see if it's possible to survive on bars alone :)

    That sounds fantastic. :D Can't see why it wouldn't be possible. (And less to carry!)

    I am doing part of the Transpennine Trail this summer but I will be fully back to food by then.

    Wow, that all sounds like great fun :) I don't know about you but I've always done my best walking on an empty stomach. When we go walking I can't eat until the evening or I slow right down.

    Why won't your soup be possible? :confused: Surely you can have a fire occasionally, or take a small stove with you to boil water?

    My bro-in-law is currently flogging Kelly Kettles on ebay. Won't post a link but google them, they are only a bit bigger than a large mug to carry and will run off literally any fuel. Twigs, leaves, paper, anything. :)

    if you are anything like me, I think you will lack in energy too much
    Its a big ask-especially as you will be carrying tent, sleep ing bags etc(or are you B&B?)
    but then you are a big girl ;) and will eat if you really slump I suppose

    I'd rephrase that Maggie :) it sounds like an insult hahaha!
    It should be ok, I can go for days with no food and feel fine unlike my sister who faints if she doesn't eat every two hours. She's very skinny but eats like a horse. I am guessing that my metabolism would keep me alive in adverse conditions longer.
    Resisting the booze along the trail will be a tough one :)
