Do you know what you want to eat a month from now? Nope? Neither do we, but we’re figuring it out as we create our delivery packages, and it’s slowly driving us mad.
Part of the planning for a thru-hike, is preparing your re-supply buckets for pickup along the trail. To do this, we have to think through every meal we’ll consume for twenty-nine days, hydration needs, toiletries, and any other items you’d normally just pop in to a store to buy. We’ve been working on our buckets for a few weeks now, ordering food, and laying everything out to make sure we’ve hit all the bases. Next Monday we bid adieu to our packages, and I have to say that this is one step of the process we really aren’t going to miss.
They tell me that planning + preparation = fun times for all… fingers crossed we pass with flying colors when we put that theory to the test.
