Well, we have done a day here, a day there and .... now ..... TARA !!! we are going to give it a go for a full week away. Possible plans so far are for the area of La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Il de Oléron, Saint Palais, Châtelaillon-Plage area maybe taking in the huge (like really big) boat show at La Rochelle

How much payload do you have?
Divide this by the weight of a pack of jammy dodgers and you have your answer

You need to multiply the number of cuppas you have per day....remember to adjust this for the fact that you will be relaxing more so having more refreshments, substituting the requisite number of cuppas for alcoholic drinks which tend to not accompany Jammie Dodgers satisfactorily (jammie Dodgers do not achieve the correct level of sogginess when dunked in alcoholic drinks.....I know, I've tried)

Anyway, multiply the final number of cuppas by the optimum number of Dodgers that you like to consume with each cuppa. You then need to factor in (a) the number of people present as Jammie Dodger consumption is contagious and they will want to draw on your supply (b) how many dogs you will have present and whether they have really sad begging eyes (c) finally, you need to add a breakages allowance dependant on how packs are stored for the journey. Although broken Dodgers can still be consumed they do not officially count towards your consumption. Eating broken Dodgers is essential to stop crumbs contaminating the moho floor so eating them is providing a service to the other members of your party. If you dunk broken Dodgers this will result in residue in your mug which will contaminate the grey waste system, best to just eat them undunked so as not to damage the plumbing.

When you have arrived at this total, add a contingency based on how many times per day on average you pass the cupboard where they are stored and cannot pass without dipping in for a quick one.

Hope this helps....

You only need enough for the journey there (est 10 pks), on arrival you'll be eating the lovely Breton delights (far more lovely calories than your average lightweight "dodger")
