    I have trouble getting my olive oil down, I dont always take it, but I really think the easiest way to do it is just to carry it in a flask and take a 1 or 2 oz shot of it per day.

    Do you only carry the havalon knife, you don't carry a fixed blade or folding knife as well?

    Props to you, I could never be a minimalist.
    Just the havalon now, I used to carry two of the buck pack lite knives but the steel didn't hold up well enough. No first aid item except sometimes I do take a couple handfuls of advil in a ziplock bag. Your only starving for the first day or two, then your body gets used to it after that and its really not bad.

    ...ok reading more on your page.....
    My goal is usually 1500 calories per day, the two honey stingers and the nut butter give me a little over 500 of that in just 3 ounces. the trail mix kicks in a good portion depending on how much a guy eats and it makes an easy snack. The meal bars kick in about 160 cal per ounce and i take about 4-5 oz per day so theres another 700+ calories there.

    I also realize this isn't for everyone, and there is nothing wrong with taking other stuff or carrying a few extra ounces. This is what I have cut down to carrying after several years of fine tuning and finding what I use on trips and what I don't. What is left are the only item I feel that I have to have to live as a predator in the mountains.

    I just received my Justin's, so do you spread it on anything or just eat it out of the pack?
