No one can carry food for 150 days. My journey is actually split up into 33 small 2-8 day segments. Most of them end near civilization where I can purchase food for the next leg.
Some, however end near a small town with a gas station and combination restaurant/post office. For these I can mail myself food! I have 13 of these I need to plan for. Since I will need a LOT of calories AND I don’t want to get tired of the same food 3-4 months from now, this is a challenge.
Above is most, but not all of the food I’ve purchased. I already packed two boxes!
The keen eye will see a Bear Canister to the right and shoe boxes to the left. As I need specialized or replacement gear, that can be mailed to me as well.
The plan is to have these boxes packed and ready before the 10th when I leave for San Diego.
Less than a week left! I’m not quite panicking yet, but it’s hard to get to sleep at night! Meh…I can sleep when I reach Canada. 😉
