I am restarting next week, last time I did LL I stopped about April 2008. Are the only new foodpacks tomato soup and porridge? Quite looking forward to trying the porridge, I like that kind of thing, hope I like this one. Have they changed the consistency of the packs, I seem to remember they were updating some of them so they were easier to mix. I am hoping to be able to take the mushroom soup to work but don't want to have to use any kind of blender/mixer. Really need something I can just mix like a cup-a-soup without it being minging. When I first started we were told to drink 4L of water on top of any we used for packs and tea/coffee etc. Has this changed now? I seem to remember something about you could now count the water you use for packs and other drinks. Has anything else changed? Do you still get the same kind of losses second time round?
