Food is our next priority. It’s true, I eat way better when I’m on an outdoor trip than I do at home! Eating is an all day affair, hot breakfast to get us going, first lunch to keep us going, second lunch to keep us happy, hot dinner (with local embellisments as available) and chocolate, what more could one need? Everything gets repackaged, either to eliminate packaging redundancy or to put in resealable bags. Wow there is a lot of packaging! It’s ideal to buy in bulk when possible. I rarely ever eat as much as I think I will, except for the chocolate, but a litte extra garlic mashed is efficient back up in case we get stuck a few extra days. (it’s always a good idea to plan for that possibility.)
Karisa and Nick have already delt with many more requisitions, protocols and check lists. There’s just some FS paperwork and getting up to speed on flight requirements for me to do. Only thing left is to collect group cooking gear, tents, med kit and folded up kayaks (more on those soon), paddles & skirts and pack up the truck for tomorrow’s flight out. Then I get to do a little more exploring in Petersburg.
