If you are wondering about our food supplies, we can put you at ease - we have plenty. Firstly, during our seasickness initiation phase we ate approx. 1/3 of the norm, if even that. Secondly, The ships we met on our way resupplied us with fresh fruits, canned fish, bread and even 2 packs of Philadelphia cheese. All of this was a nice addition to our meal plan. And thirdly, and I can’t stress this enough, we have made the right choice regarding our supporters and their products.
The main dish - expedition food from CELOTAJS store, which after adding some hot water turns into proper restaurant class meal.
Oatmeal and musli bars from HERKULESS.
ISOSTAR energy bars and jelly which we usually eat during our night shifts.
It is hard to imagine a better trademark for GEMOSS nuts than ZELTA RIEKSTS (for our foreign friends, it means “golden nut”). On our boat those nuts are really worth more than gold, because the nutty calories are like a rocket fuel for our engineless boat.
LAIMA chocolate, Selga cookies (we still have one pack left, thank god), candy and sherbet totaling to approx. 100 kg doesn’t let us forget our home and childhood.
THANK YOU FRIENDS! WE WELL NOT RUN OUT OF FOOD TILL RIO!
