Need some food?

If you want to carry some food, either just in case or as your main eating these are very light, and provide decent energy with a fairly decent taste:
eBay.co.uk Shop - Captain Moggy's Surplus Store: Expedition Rations: Expedition Rations Cod Potato in Cream Sauce
or have a look at Captain Moggy's Surplus
oh, and if you have a hunt around there are some nice motorcycle base layers in there too. have a look at the jackets, trousers, hats and Tshirts section

Dried Noodles (Bulk Filling), Cereal bars (Energy) and lots of Multi-Vits (Goodness) and what people often forget Enough clean water to cook with. The above kept us going in more situations then I care to count due to Her Majesties Logistics core being complete Muppets.

Packs light always ready and keeps you on your feet for a few days when needed.

Add the Cat for Protein, or anything else you can run over.

Good point there Lee, fresh roadkill (rabbit, hare, pheasant, pigeon, squirrel etc) are well tasty, FREE and the "nasty" part of killing ( for some people anyhow, i'd kill and eat my Mums pet dog if I was hungry enough...... sorry Mum!)
How to tell if roadkill is fresh? are its eyes still glossy? Good, its fresh enough to eat, they dull off after a few hours. less in hot countries.

Bon Apetit!

Now then Moggy, I didn't mention Camels cos there a bit of a beggar to strap to the topbox, plus your not liable to run into many dead Camels in Sweden, Spain or Stratford-upon-Avon now are ya?

Anyone ever tried Camel? I tried Horse, that was ok, didnt find it by the road dead mind you....

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
