@pla good luck curbing the appetite after big efforts. I haven't managed it yet.
I really don't like the gels. I have a powder that I add to one of my water bottles if I'm going out for over 3 hours and a flapjack or similar bar. Over 4-5 hours and I'd likely stop somewhere for food. Also depends how many category climbs there are 😅.
Stream of inane drivel.
Some legacy microblogging.
Carrying bags of sand and what have you.
