As for fluids, however, I learned a trick from my dad. He worked on a factory assembly line for 30 years, a brutally hot place without AC. He would take empty gatorade bottles, refill them with tap water, and place 4 of them in the freezer for work the next dsy

Im in construction, thats my daily routine. Except, I buy cases of water, usually throw 6-7 in freezer at night.  That saves me from buying ice.

Come on Reg.

Those frozen water bottles are for keeping the beer cold!

For short prospecting trips a few sourdough rolls (buns) and cheese and fruit are adequate. For longer trips (fortnight or so) sausages and chops (cutlets) which are used in the first few days and from then on its vegetarian, mainly pasta and rice based dishes, with whatever vegetables will last the distance.

A few beers and a bottle of my home made whiskey are also included. Naturally plenty of water from my rainwater tank.

Finally somebody has the smarts to bring along a jug of snakebite medicine!

Mackerel stays in my ATV bag every time I'm out detecting. They taste great and it gives me plenty of energy. Better than vegetarian, pasta or rice. Sometimes Spiced Rum and Coke for a celebration swig when I pop a nice nugget out of the ground. Reg, take a hot bath with some camomile and Epsom salts and just calm down, the whole world has gone off their rocker. It's not just America. Australia is becoming quite Orwellian from what I'm seeing. Oh and by the way jerky is the bomb. You should try it more often. Packed with protein and energy. Just what we need out their detecting.

Obviously Sir you have never tried jerked Joey it's oh so tender and tasty.Roasted Dingo and frilled-neck lizards ain't bad gnawin either.

Well I have eaten a good bit of Roo several times and a few lizards also.

Very good with the right person cooking them, the lizard is best over a camp fire with a little salt pepper and garlic.

Yes I have been to your country once for about 2 months for work.

GS5000, that canned fish looks disgusting, and I have managed to find the odd colour on my pasta and rice diet, so I shall give your culinary advice a miss thanks.

You are right about my country going down the dunny. We bought the maps from you.

PS the correct spelling for the second application is....there, not their.

PPs Give up the smokes. Not good for your health.
