    The mission: You're gonna march 100 miles in four days.

    You have the requisite equipment packed in your ruck ( backpack ), and you have space for one Pogey Bait item.

    I'm not sure where the term originated, but Pogey Bait is essentially whatever junk food you choose to carry.

    For our purposes, you have the space equal to half a loaf of bread, and trust me, that's generous.

    Whatcha eatin', maggots?

    Peanut M&M's. Save for beer which I would not want on a multi day hike, they are the best treat one can ask for.

    4 days though? I have a brother in-law in-law who does ultra marathons and did 50 miles in about 10 hours. He's crazy of course and I am amazed at what he is capable of.

    Almost quoted for truth. I love me some good beef jerky!

    I could care less about the slim jims. :(

    I would replace the dried fruits with a bottle of Physllium Husks, transferred to a ziploc bag....

    Physllium Husks, nice touch, maybe some unsalted pumpkin or sunflower seeds, also. :)

    You LOVE the beef...
    :eek:

    Yeah my vote is peanut M&Ms. I have gone the jerky route before, but somehow those little candy fellers really hit the spot. But a half bread loaf bag...good gawd! :p

    For me, Snicker candy bars!! I can't live without them little devils!

    Pogey Bait is what my Cheif used to call snacks we bought at the ships store. I don't know the origin either!!

    Beef jerky and trail mix.

    I'd also put some of that camel pack elixer mix in my camel pack, it's good ****.

    Oh and I'm pretty sure Pogey bait originated from the acronym POG (Person other than a grunt) and the bait is what Infantry types use to catch POGs and do mean combat arms stuff to 'em.

    Guys,,, what is it did you guys grow up under a rock or waaaaaay out in the country???? Ether that or you are to damn young to remember.

    “Pogey Bait” is what you use to lure some “Pogey” into the sack. “Pogey” is a old military term for Pu__y.

    And believe me you are not going to lure any to your bed with beef jerky or M&M’s except you Skull, they say that’s all you have anyway….. beef jerky.

    Now Twinkies, those golden pieces of fruit from the God’s, are always a irresistible lure for “Pogey”.

    You should have been in the bar the night my dad was telling my mom and my aunt about what they had for Sunday dinners when he was in the Navy. Let's just say that it was a veteranarianical term for an equine body part not associated with the mare, and described cold cuts.

    Upon further research, because s**t like this bugs me, apparently the Marines coined it, Pogey was Chinese for prostitute. I guess a Hershey bar went a long way in China.

    Gork slays me.:D

    Thanks Benning. I will add that to my vast storehouse of little known and mostly useless information in my brain for that off chance I am in "Cash Cab" and get that question.
