Last night around ten PM, Lauren and I bagged our last batch of dehydrated apples. I don't know how we did it, but our food dehydration worked out nearly perfectly. All the food we had to dry seemed to take as much time as we had on the island. My parents neighbor's (The Walti's) lent us their dehydrator, so that we could dry more food. (Thank you)
Over the last week, Lauren and I went through our entire food supply, and hashed through our Itinerary until we had refined a simple process for resupply. Late last night, we sat my mom down and explained the process. She will be mailing all the food we pre-prepared, plus any gear we may need.
Lastly, we went through our packs, shedding ounces each time, until we reached a satisfactory level. Both of us are hiking with a base weight of around twenty pounds (varying with desert, or high sierra conditions).
Well, we drive south. We visit family along the way.
And April 14th, the walking starts...in hot desert. Thank you everyone for the well wishes. Sorry if we miss getting back to you. It's been go go go for the last two weeks.
Happy Trails, Inner Peace & Harmony
