It's not that much fun carrying that much food - unless it gets you to places you want to be. Quite nice to know you can carry food for 24 days though in a way I guess....
Well the most I carried so far on my back was for 2 persons for 5 days. So that equals 10 days for 1 person. However I once did take food for 2 adults and 2 kids with me for 20 days. You figured well I didn't put that in a backpack but in cart. (bit like a towing a pulka on wheels). Since I want to loose the cart when hiking with my family I aim to being able to carry for at least 6-7 days of food for all of us on my back (actually it's the legs that are doing the work) . That's way I'm interested in big load carriers. I can also start to work with food drops by using post restante. But that seems a bit of a hassle to me.
So it's reasonably possible to wild pitch for a overnighter. The only worrysome part is that landowners don't know they may make only use of reasonable force when I decide to go not quietly
Ofcourse I'll always leave quietly in a friendly manner and a big excuse for invading his propierty due to the fact I couldn't trace the owner and just ask for permission. Normally when I can trace an owner I always ask for permission.
What about wild pitching in England? I know it's officialy illegal in England. But in some countries where it's also illegal local rural folks and law don't mind it as long as it's clear you're a hiker and will leave next morning with ofcourse leaving no trace of rubbish. Just curious that is.... I could imagine for instance hiking a path in England with my kids and do a wild pitch every 10 miles or so.
I thought carrying around 30 kg's rather fun in some Bergans packs. Like their Powerframe. Ok the pack itself weighs already 5kg but boy those packs certainly fit the bill for the big loads.
I tested the Klatermussen Granit with 35 kg's in it. Beside the pack was a tad too short for me it also did rather well for it's low weight. The pack has a sturdy frame capable of bigger loads. Not as comfy as the Bergans but nearly there for less base weight.
But oké these packs are not suited for those focused on ultra light. But some people do forget that it also has some appeal to carry food with you for 2 weeks or even more....
Did anyone already mention that NW sucks? No? oké NW sucks big time. Too many people walking together (more than 20-30) with poles wildly and around tearing up the footpath. At least that's the Dutch expierence. even a single horse doesn't do that many damage to a footpath. A bunch of mountainbikers are even nicer people to meet on a footpath than a complete stampede of overaged elders doing their workout together doing NW.
