Re: Sticker Shock, need a new plan

Re: What is your dream 3 month backpacking trip?
Honestly? None. I get restless after a few days and am ready to do other things. Hiking has always been that way for me. After 4 days out, I am ready to go home and shower. Then a day later,...

Re:I'd be wary....
I'd be wary of a nutritionist who would encourage you to start off your day with no food. That is a fast way to visit bonk land. A light breakfast, sure. But no food means you are playing aroun...
