It feels like I've left a ton of planning to the last minute, especially risk management. In an effort so save us from the monotonous fare we usually eat, I've been dehydrating some meals/snacks and making/freezing Energy Bars some, but have plans to do way more with major recipe testing from our Laurie March's " A Fork in the Trail".
The clothing in my kit is light, but Todds is heavy (frankly he likes his heavy pants!), Raingear/shelter/sleeping system is light, our first aid/survival kits are heavily bloated and need a serious diet, we're still making mess kit decisions but our choices are fairly light. (Nothing is SUL.)
Already scrambling to find Todd a digital point and shoot, we just got the news that the issue with my (35mm film) Minox GT seems to have turned terminal: now I'm actually considering taking 3 1/2 pounds of archaic camera & spot meter along...
Next day edit: This post may have been an effort to make myself more accountable for my hike planning or lack thereof, but perhaps a journal would be a more appropriate venue.
