The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

There is a fan-heater-esque whirring noise coming from the kitchen. With only a tiny bit more than a month left until the TGO Challenge (eek!), and with a distinct lack of at-home time available, it seemed prudent to start the dehydrating exercise to make sure that we have enough food to see us between food-serving establishments.

In a frenzy of activity, Mick has cooked himself a large and potent chilli, whereas I took advantage of bananas being sold off at Tesco and bought a dozen, which have duly been skinned and sliced.

We now have two dehydrators on the go, with four trays of bananas and four trays of chilli creating an interesting aroma.

I have my doubts that any of the bananas will see the Challenge. Given that they don’t need to be rehydrated, they have a tendency to be eaten well before the trip for which they were intended.
