Hey guys, i'm going my first long distance hike in april this year, the West Highland Way. i've not much long distance/multiple days experience but i am a walker and i'm prepped and still prepping for the date. I have 2 question if any of you on here have done this route. Is it hammock friendly? And i have no clue about traveling foods as i've only done 2 nights 2 miles from home so i could afford to take a load of goodies, what would be the best foods to take as far as longevity, bulk saving and nutritional value is concerned?
i've heard off the greatness of peanut butter, tuna and dried fruits, but id like a second opinion from home or from experience. One of the guys i'm doing this with is a keen photographer and he's just recently bought a new lens. we've all agreed to take our time and take in the spring scenery so we plan a max of 7 days out. i want to make sure i have enough of the right compact food, weight is not a big issue but i can see the appeal for my knees sake.
