so true I am laughing my ass off


I would suggest as others have if you do some canning be very careful. Botulism is an anerobe and is the main thing to watch out for with improper canning methods and swollen cans

He may have to alter his diet some I agree. While all the good samatritans who beleive that less meat is better for youand want to live on nuts, seeds and grains rememebr your body needs to have a certain amount of proteins also so beans , and poissibly soy products should nutritionally be part of the mix. In addition I dont think he has to give up his fondness for meat. NOKr do I think it is wise to alter his diet drastically before the voyage...just temper it somewhat

I would suggest you buy dehydrated meats, jerky etc and learn to make recipes which allow you to rehydrate them. You may not be eating meats in sold roast or steak form, but they will be easier to store.

Excellant tip
