I need to check if this one, measurements: 66x37x37cm, is actually big enough to fit our 65L hiking bags in. I just checked, and it isn't! Our Osprey bags are: 84 (l) x 38 (w) x 39 (h).

53

May not be necessary with the Satphone. Mixed reviews. Yes, this doesn't sound good. We need to discuss the SatPhone connectivity and costs. Some alternative ideas are here: http://thenextchallenge.org/how-to-communicate-expedition/

10011004
These are waaaaay too expensive (around £5 per meal per person!) I'm going to buy us a digital food dehydrator and make us the meals at home from scratch. Will budget 4kg of dehydrated food per person, which works out at 8 days of food. Will make more to be dropped with us at the resupply point, and we will also have to catch a lot of fish!

Vaccum sealing kit and bags required too!
