Make sure you have enough water
.... Forget the provisions for the 2 week .... ye never know what's gonna happen!!
on my boat, water to drink is considered part of provisioning
. i usually keep drinking water
for a month on board even in port. food comes AFTER diesel
and water. ALL is important to make a successful passage and not dehydrate or starve. food is important for energy. without food one becomes weaker. without water, same thing until ye die of dehydration.
i have some friends had bouts with dehydration despite my words--they learned.
having been icu and emergency
rn forever, i KNOW what to bring and not to bring. only makes sense.
overstocking is better than understocking in ANYTHING.
weed out the unusable items and go for it.
havent submerged anything in olive oil--the stuff is too pricey to waste it like that. i use items as bought from store-isnt the need to preserve as much nowadays as was in history
before fridges were invented. even sans fridge, i dont oil my items.
