For food we tried to keep it light and pack provisions for a week, rationale being we could stop after 7 or 8 days and restock. We brought oatmeal for breakfast, peanut butter, honey, and bread for sandwiches at lunch, and canned chicken and instant-mix rice and pasta for dinners, along with oranges and tinned fish for snacks.

The food ended up being a lesson in and of itself, we never cooked breakfast, always just woke up and packed, then ate an orange with some cold instant-mix coffee on the canoe, it was too much of a hassle trying to start a new fire every morning. Lunch was good every day, and we ended up stopping in towns for a good meal about half of the days. After the first couple nights we started foregoing dinner as well, opting to eat a big lunch and maybe a small sandwich if we were starving, cooking and cleaning just got to be too much of a hassle for how labor intensive the trip was
