Best Answer
Provisions and Means of Subsistence

150 lbs. Portable soup

3 Bushels of allum or rock salt

Spices assorted

6 Kegs of 5 gallons each making 30 gallons of rectified spirits

Most of their food came from hunting along the way, but the rock salt would help preserve it. Stops at forts and visits to Native Americans would provide them with non-meats.However, at one point there was a shortage of food and members of the expedition were forced to eat leather to avoid starvation. Thankfully, no one starved and the expedition was able to pull through.
