Below is a list of the consumables that I, errr, consumed en route to completing the 1,100 mile Iditasport Impossible race in February, 2000.
240 Clif Bars (do the math--that's an average of 16 bars per day...)
30 lbs of cookies (mostly fudge stripe, plus some chocolate covered grahams)
16 lbs of black licorice
10 tall cans of Pringles
10 lbs of red licorice
16 lbs of turkey jerky
30 lbs of candy bars; Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, Butterfinger, Three Musketeers, etc... (at this point of re-typing this list, my teeth are starting to hurt, and I'm no longer wondering why my dental bills have been steadily increasing...)
90 fruit roll ups
80 peanut butter and nutella burritos
15 lbs of cashews
15 lbs of turkey bacon
45 Pop Tarts
And while I wouldn't exactly call them consumables, the above could not have been ingested without these:
3 lbs of Tums
3 lbs of Flintstones childrens chewables.
To this day I have no idea how I ate all that in 15 days. It makes me feel bloated thinking about it. Even basic math skills can come up with an average of over 8 pounds of solid food per day. 8 pounds. Good god!
For those whose minds instantly leapt ahead to the next logical question, NO, I had no trouble staying regular out there... I credit the oil in the licorice for that...
And at the end of the race, once I'd checked into a room in Nome, showered, called home, and ditched all my extra clothing, I sought out a scale to learn that I had lost one pound in that 15 days. One.
In 2002 I used a very, very similar diet (but didn't write it down) to again complete the 1,100 miles to Nome. The only details that leap out from my hazy memory of that event are that I replaced the PB & N burritos from Y2K with bacon and Velveeta burritos. Typing that DOES elicit a gag reflex...
Oh yeah--in 2K2 I ditched the licorice in favor of an equal amount of gummy worms, and that was a stroke of brilliance. Of course they were frozen solid upon removing them from my pack, and of course if I accidentally dropped one on ice (which totally constitutes food abuse) it would shatter like glass. But if I could somehow wedge them into my mouth, a few short seconds in there would thaw them into their 'normal' chewy state, and that memory brings back a grin and not just a little bit of salivation.
