I'm sure the players guide mentions that the listed rations are for 1 week only- journeys that are longer than one week will require some hunting!

I need to look that up. Thanks!

I would also recommend treating the price for rations as representing a week's worth instead of one day's rations. Even adjusted down to 60c, the listed price is very inflated. AiMe treats 1 silver penny as being equivalent to 5 gold pieces in D&D 5e. 60c is equal to 5s, and therefore can be converted to 5 gp.
Yes, I have seen some other posts regarding this. I will run with the adjustment that a ration represents a week's worth of a food. Very good, thanks!

In the Equipment Chapter under the heading Travelling Gear, p.154:

"Both sets of travelling gear include rations for a week of travelling. If their journey is going to last more than a week, most Player-heroes will generally have to rely on their skill as hunters."

(this is because food rations won't last much longer than a week)
