They should not require heating to eat and should be stored in a sealed plastic bag. You must carry at least 4 items from : cereal bars, nuts/dried fruit mix, 2 chocolate bars, Tuna & crackers pack, dextrose tablets, bag of sweets or equivalent. These will be checked by your assessor at the end of the expedition before you can eat them. MOBILE PHONES Your expedition is a chance for you to be independent and selfreliant for a while. SMSing your mates/parents back home does not help this. Each group will be allowed to carry one mobile
