I spent the entire weekend prepping for the trip. Figuring out all of our meals and repackaging them to cut weight and size. It was a long process and by the end I was totally over it! Everything is measured, weighed, and math done on how much water to add. All the instructions had to be written on the baggies; otherwise I will be clueless out there on what to do. Breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks for 11 days. I love planning, but this part is always soo overwhelming for me. Glad it is mainly done. I only have a few things left to figure out and that will all take place when we do our final packing in Mammoth.
I also got almost all of the clothes and tents sprayed with Permethrin. It is a strong bug repellent that we can use on gear and clothes. Just need to finish up Cordlan’s clothes. It does not take long to dry and is odorless after a few hours. We still have 1 week for the bugs to die down. Let’s be praying for that miracle!
