    Awesome trip and account of your adventure. I had a great time on that trail earlier this year as well.

    10 lbs of food for 9 days sounds like a weight loss plan....You must have been stealing some snickers from your hiking buds!

    I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and dessert every night. Also I had lunch at both Longmire and Sunrise, which helped to lower the weight. Those Packit Gourment meals are filling.

    So...no weight loss.

    I just bailed on Wednesday from our WT attempt. Rain and snow for ten days was not my idea of a good time...not to mention I got slightly hypothermic no Sunday. Trail report coming this weekend...but the good news....lots of places to hang a hammock!

    The book: 'NOLS Cookery' is a great addition to my bookshelf, and it's been there in one form or another for 30 yrs or so.
    The 'Ration Planning' section has the following guidelines...(all for 1 person, one day)
    1.5 lbs =2500-3000 cal For hot days and warm nights, trips with children and camp/leisure days
    1.75-2 lbs = 3000-3500 cal Ideal for moderate to active days...
    You get the picture....

    The NOLS Cookery book has LOTS of good info as well as recipes that really work, though some require a 'dutch oven' or similar - which I won't carry, or a small wood fire, which I won't use.

    Anyway, a recommended book IMO.

    The engine won't run without decent quality and quantity of FUEL!

    Nothing wrong with smart choices on the weather.

    The forecast for this weekend is pretty awful as well.

    My kayak trip ended up today in a 'skedaddle back home' after one night. Rain and wind on the tarp/tent is all very well, but on the roof at home is nice too!

    The forecast this weekend definitely confirms my decision! Rather be safe than on the news!
