Lunch Packing at the AMS Food HQ
Patrick packs and weighs his lunch food for the expedition. He'll be heading out with guides Tim Hewette and Alex Stroud later today. Each person packs 3/4 to one pound of lunch food per day, including hot and cold drink mixes. This equals 15 to 21 pounds to carry. We have them choose their own food so they pack what they like. It is hard to have an appetite at altitude so if you don't like it down here your sure as heck not going to like it any better up there.
