Trail dharma (with a little d)
Since my last post I have lost, yet to find, 13lbs and trail hiked 83 miles (not including daily 3 mile walks) Including the 10 miles I did with a full pack in the snow and the dark last night!!! Train in adverse conditions and you will thank yourself for the easy days I say.
I am learning much on my increase of strength, stamina and gear.
Some gear news and notes: I have been testing out several new items from REI (the mecca of outdoors if you take it seriously:-) First on cooking. I have been dehydrating many meals to my taste and to save mucho dinero. On that note I got myself a PowerPot. It is what it says, a cooking pot that charges electronic devices!!! So far its been cool because its an extra source of electrons when you are cooking (well re-hydrating) anyway. It comes with a extra bowl/lid and weighs all of 12.1 oz. If you compare it to my MSR cook pot I have used for years at 18oz, Im looking at a good thing.
I have been toying with a couple of changes in 'the plan' to start later in the year (about Sept 15) and go South bound from Whitney to BigBear.
I will try and post when I have more, gear that is:) TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)
