G'day Chris, I'm from the Hunter Valley too! Not a member of a particular group but more than happy to communicate at a local level and maybe see where we can take it from there.Welcome aboard.

Welcome Chris, we are on high ground, not as near to the coast as you are. Our group is no longer active, except on our forum on the net, & even that is slow of late. Rocky is a member too.
We store food in our pantry & use & replace to keep it turning over. We transfer grains & flour into glass jars. Food bags I make myself from leather, cotton & linen.
If you are travelling alone, then there has to be some compromise between minimum weight & maximum self reliance. That is why it is important to pick the right equipment, gear that is sustainable. Dry foods are the lightest, canned food the heaviest. If you are travelling with a partner, then you can share equipment & one of you can carry more food. This food should be trail food & foods to tied you over until you get settled again. Then you will need to hunt, trap & forage.
Feel free to contact me any time.
Regards, Keith.
