Day 6 C2C - 21.2 miles

We had breakfast at the hostel. So that you understand what ‘breakfast’ is in Sweden, it’s lots of cold meats (I can’t tell you more than that since I don’t eat any of it) and eggs. They say they are hard boiled, but to me they are not. The yoke is still very soft and mushy, and I can’t eat that. Oh, and they put caviar on their eggs. This is not the ‘normal’ caviar, it's a salty pinkish mush that comes in a tube (I did taste it). To me, it’s nasty. To the locals, you don’t eat eggs without it. There are also freshly sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, OJ, ‘porridge’ (oatmeal), and breads with jam etc. And, of course, coffee. The Swedes must drink more coffee per capita than any other country!

I have been preparing my own backpacking food for the past 10 years.  Whether you’re going out for two, or 200 nights, you’ve got to eat. Especially when you’re pumping out 10-12+ hour days, hauling a pack on your back.  As the miles stretch on, food often sits in the forefront of your mind.   Unfortunately, choices for food on the trail can be limited. There are options though. Options you can do yourself at home with a little prep and a little dehydration. Meals can come to life at any campsite with just a bit of boiling water. Once you  start dehydrating your own meals, you’ll never want to settle for store bought backpacking meals again!
