Ed had this idea of being able to take this wonder food into the field – this is what he came up with.
Put 3 measures of Horleys Meal Replace into a small sealable bag along with 3-4 measures of milk powder.
Make sure you take a wide mouthed drink bottle with you, minimum 500mls. Pour about 125 mls of water into the bottle add the powder mix, shake like hell add the balance of water and shake a bit more, it takes a bit of mixing but the shaking is well worth it. Now you have your wonder drink ready – that easy!!!
For the upcoming Rogaine I will have one before the start one after six hours, the most importantly one when you finish. This stuff is so easy to digest and easy to run on. I will be also sucking away the tried and true Horleys Replace. We are going to have a couple of drink stations in the field with Horleys Replace. Don’t forget you will still need a bit of solid food as well. With these two products on board you will be on fire!!!
Ed and climbing partner Lachie Ashton trialled this secret recipe on their recent summit of Mt. Earnslaw - it was amazing. We were a bit late getting off Earnslaw, due to a late start waiting for fog to clear, we had to spend that night with minimal gear and food – Horleys Replace and a few meager snacks for a cold night in Esquilant Biv. 2200m. We had the Horleys and tried to get a night’s sleep in our survival blankets – not the greatest. In the morning we had quite a big walk out and with the Horleys in our system we were definitely up for it. We had left most of our gear at 1400m Biv. to summit travelling light with the intention of getting back to 1400m biv. before dark.

While Terry’s was setting the Rogaine course Ed went looking for potential Rogaining territory. This what he came up with!!!
You need a good 6hrs to run to the end and back. Quite an amazing place.
