    Several Nalgenes. I prefer those to bladders because we can refill with local water sources, purifying as needed.
    I include a jet boil and a few packs of coffee and chocolate for breaks and when cold.
    For food we had some beef and ostrich jerky which we ate during short breaks at certain points.
    I brought along a couple of stripped MREs as well.

    Breaks were planned about once an hour. No time limits, but not an "eat up and nap" thing either. During breaks we dropped rucks, took off layers, ate, took bearings, and let the sweat dry up.

    This is huge when rucking. I always take at least 1 spare shirt and 1 pair of socks so I can swap out. When I take the wet off I strap it inside out to the outside of my ruck so it can dry while I'm on the move. The sun and wind dry it and the UV will kill bacteria that makes it stink. To keep your ruck from getting gamey from sweat storage, dry it in the sun.
