We gave up bread on the road and went to wraps

Never looked back and they take up way less room and will last for weeks in the fridge

Muffins are good too, as they're versatile & much less crushable than bread.

My take on the lunch box idea is this.

A vacuum sealer relies on the bag collapsing to remove the air. The lunch box will stop that happening for at least a part of it.

You will remove some of the air, but not all of it, and create a low pressure area inside the bag, not a complete vacuum.

Lower pressure will mean less air (less air means less oxygen inside) and will probably mean that your bread will last a little longer but not much and I don't think it will help a lot.

Will be interesting to hear of your results if you do go ahead and try it.

It will also be interesting to see if the vacuum also removes some of the air from inside the slices of bread and makes them shrink and go flat anyway.

At a guess, those parbake arrive frozen at WW. Ask for a frzn ctn to take home and store in the freezer!

I checked out the parbake shelf stock at Woolworths. Good until July 29th. (and that's the NONrefrigerated storage date)

so I thought some closure on this was worthwhile.

did the Madigan Line. six 4wds, four cyclists on fatbikes, two dogs and a hippo.

No major problems. Trip report and lots of pics (mainly of my dog though...) to come in a seperate post.

Bread...

Parbaked bread.
WORKED A TREAT. kept it in a hard plastic container to keep it from being crushed. Used them as required. Just heated up the camp oven, chucked some coals on the top and the parbaked bread inside. 10-15 mins and they were cooked to (my) perfection. Nice and brown and crisp on the outside.

Fresh bread from bread mix.
We cooked bread in the camp oven from purchased Woolies bread mix three times. Every time we got better at it.

Frozen bread.
on the morning that we left Mt Dare, we grabbed a couple of frozen loaves of sliced bread. One of those loaves was still fine for toasting when we camped at the Betoota hotel on the 2nd Thursday following. So over a week and a half. These were kept in a cardboard pie box on top of the fridge cage.

All in all... everything ended up working just as we'd hoped and we learnt a lot.

Have you tried white sourdough bread, It will last up to 4 or so days non refrigerated wrapped in a calico bag out of the heat in a cool area. cheers Ron.
