  1. Hey Therese and Mark-- I just wanna say Go! Go! Go! keep at it. How far will you go? Would you eat flour and water for a day if that's all you had left? Are you pushing as long as your can, or just as long as it's comfortable?

  2. Sarah - Thanks for being our cheerleader. Mark and I are getting together on Thursday to trade some things and to combine some ingredients into some tasty treats! I know we won't make it until March 15. However, we are working out the details of how long we can last by keeping each other up to date on inventory and talking about trades to extend our stock as long as possible.

  3. Oh - by the way - As long as there is an egg available, I can make that flour and water into noodles.

  4. I will go until I run our of good protein foods to eat. I do a lot of physical work and I don't intend to weaken myself for the sake of the competition. Once the beans, meat, and dairy are all gone, so are my chances of victory!
    In reality our stores are running low across the board - when the competition is over I will probably have a few pounds of cornmeal left, wheat bran, garlic, salt, and spices. I expect the rest will be gone either through trade or consumption.
    Flour, water, and an egg; add salt and you can have crackers too. Or take the egg away, add yeast and you can have bread.
