MMM: pack yer bags!

Well, I have a few hours before catching the event bus down to Tollymore. The dinner is on, and the final packing is being done. I’m also taking the poles and pegs of the tent, so when that’s added I’m probably looking at 4.5kg base weight, plus 1.4kg food and 750ml water. I forgot to take photos of the contents, maybe I’ll get them after when I unpack and update this…

The food gives over 5500kcal. This seems a lot but probably isn’t for a 30hr period in the cold, with perhaps 9-10hrs of racing. I can of course get some breakfast in me tomorrow and pig out afterwards on Sunday evening. The details are below…we’ll see if anything is left (other than the required emergency rations).

Weather is looking good for Saturday, with rain coming in on Sunday morning. Will not be bad to that. I must go now.. have to be out the door in an hour and a half. Now to gather non-race stuff for tonight and after…

Good luck to all entering, have fun!
