Before the 2005 Atlantic Rowing Race, I was in the right place at the right time. Some of the teams with more food than room on their boats were giving away some of their excess food. I saw packets of Expedition Foods Rice Pudding in the pile. As a kiwi, I had never had Expedition Foods before but as a fan of rice pudding, I was happy to give it a go! I grabbed all I could carry and headed back to 'Sun Latte' to stuff my sachets into any spaces I could find. After two hurricanes, a tropical storm, and a shark attack, you can imagine how great if was to discover that my rice pudding was extremely tasty! The only problem was that I didn't have more of it on board. In the 2007 Atlantic Rowing Race, fortune again smiled upon me when I saw in the 'free food' pile, some leftover Expedition Foods Rice Pudding packs as well as an entire box of M&Ms. Like the good little pre row scavenger I had become, I again grabbed all that was available and ran back to our boat with delight. I was willing to share all the M&Ms with the girls, but if they had come near my rice pudding stash, we could have had a war on our hands! When the 2014 Pacific Row possibility became a reality, I wasn't going to leave my rice pudding supply to chance. As a seasick rower, when you find something that works in the food department, you take lots of it! So I got in touch with the team at Expedition Foods and they gave me a great price so I could dine on rice pudding every day while at sea if I so desired. So by week 2, when I finally finished 'feeding the fishies', I did just that. It was rice pudding every day until week 8 when my supply ran out-the row took a little longer than expected! I really want to thank everyone at Expedition Foods who helped me become part of the first women's pair and the first kiwi to row across the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii.
