    Question Question for Australians!

    I've been checking out some great info on the web for a few years now and one thing I'm trying out is ziplock bag cooking. Unfortunately most foods that are mentioned are brands that I have never heared of as we A) do not have those brands here or B) I live where they are not available. Here is my big ask - are there any Australian hikers (or who have hiked in Australia) out there who ziplock cook and what food brands avialable in Oz to try? Maybe New Zealand food as well.

    Hi
    I use the freezer bag style for a lot of my meals and I normally try to find something similar here in Perth or just make my own recipe up.
    I also dehydrate left over dinners and place them into freezer bags (zip lock sandwich bags) and rehydrate and heat in camp.
    Good luck
    Andrew

    It's starting to feel like Whiteblaze around here.
    Keep it hammock related please.

    Try sarching www.whiteblaze.net . It is refered to as freezer bag cooking over here. There was/is a lot of talk about it over there. I personally do not like it. I know one who does. As I understand it, anything that just needs boiling water to cook with work. Just add the correct amount of water into the bag. I think it will work with most noodle meals given enough soak time.

    We try to keep it to hammocking here, but I don't mind answering other questions or pointing people to the right place to look.

    Welcome aboard.

    Yeah Stoikurt, I use a Speers that I made myself but with a different tie setup. I tie the knot in the hammock like Ed's but use 6mm cord instead of straps and use a prussic knot to adjust the lengths. These are then clipped to tree huggers via caribiners. I'm in the throws of making another 2 hammocks for my boys.
