Turmat

Turmat dehydrated food.
I came across these whilst taking part in the Fjällräven Classic in Sweden earlier this year. They where supplied by Fjällräven to all hikers and my first thought was the weight of each portion.
As they are dehydrated they weigh next to nothing compared to wet MRE meals.
I chose a mixture to take with me pulled pork, kebab stew, cod in curry sauce and salmon with pasta.
The kebab stew was a little spicy for me but the meat tasted just like donner.
Pulled pork was good but my two favourites where the two fish ones.
Once rehydrated they actually looked like fish and tasted like fish. The cod in curry sauce wasn’t really curry tasting but very good to eat.
Packs. Weigh 85g before rehydration and 450g when rehydrated and with 452kcal per 100g they are just what you need.

  1. To rehydrate open pack at the top and add boiling water to the fill line.
  2. Stir the water into the dry mix making sure you get everything wet then reseal bag.
  3. Wait 8 minutes.
  4. There is another tear line lower than the first used to open bag now tear along this which makes the bag shorter so you don’t need a massive long spoon to get to it all.

So I must say they where really good. Some people didn’t like them but I thought they where good.

The Fjallraven Classic Sweden

Fjallraven Classic

The Fjallraven Classic Sweden 2017 in aid of SARS999.org.uk

The Fjallraven Classic Sweden | Initially the plan was to fly to Stockholm and spend a week walking through a nearby National Park.

That plan was thwarted once the wife had seen an advert online for the Fjallraven Classic Sweden which follows part of the Kungsleden route.The Fjallraven Classic Sweden

Kungsleden

(King’s Trail) is a hiking trail in northern Sweden, approximately 440 kilometres (270 mi) long, between Abisko in the north and Hemavan in the south.

It passes through, near the southern end, the Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve, one of the largest protected areas in Europe.

The route we took was to start in Nikkalouokta, join the Kungsleden at Singi and finish in Abisko.

So we decided to change plans to participate in the Fjallraven Classic Sweden but we also decided to invite another friend and do the hike in aid of charity.

All three of us work for the East of England Ambulance Service in varying roles, HEMS Critical Care Paramedic, Paramedic, EMT.

We also all do other roles for other emergency services: Lifeboat Coxswain, Fire Fighter and Coastguard.

All for charity mate!

We had decided to raise charity for SARS who are a charity that provides assistance to the ambulance service in the form of Rapid Response Doctors and Critical Care Paramedics.

Suffolk Accident Rescue Service is an emergency medical charity which provide specialist volunteer doctors and paramedics to assist the East of England Ambulance Service at the scenes of serious incidents.

So the Three team members: Myself: Martin Grove (EMT & Firefighter), Adam Wright (Paramedic & Coastguard) and Rod Wells (HEMS Critical Care Paramedic, Lifeboat Coxswain & SARS Responder) started to plan our 110km hike through arctic Sweden.
