You get a reply eventually, just really slowly. I'm planning to keep the hiking thread alive, it could offer some meaningful conversation. I don't keep open the thread literally I use the catalog to find threads and check the last page sometimes if there's anything to save.
That wafer thingy has about 32% fat and 20% sugar (and 30% more other carbohydrates). It's good to eat it on the move because it gives you the necessary energy pretty fast, it's not for sitting around at camp before bedtime. The sugar is no problem as you burn it instantly as digested anyway.
If you are in a long day of walking you gonna need more than that recommended 2000 kcal/day. So the wafer helps to complement the regular foodstuff.>make better food plans for longer trips, as you can't go back for more food
This is a solid advice for anyone generally.
However here (and I'm pretty sure that's the case for most of Europe) I can just waltz in the next village to buy something as if I want a trip that avoids settlements I have to plan the way very carefully as at every 100 m there's another one... (the 100 m is an exaggeration but settlements are fairly close to each other).
