Thinking back on this time last year - if it wasn’t for Michael coming along with me this time, these last few days would feel a lot different.. much more bittersweet. We’re still nervous about leaving our kitty cats but we have a good friend looking after them. Our gear and stuff is all over the house right now. We bought all of our bulk food yesterday. Lots of almonds, cashews, walnuts, macadamias, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, oats, barley flakes, rice, pasta, quinoa, cous cous, bulgur, lentils, garbanzos, peanut butter, almond butter, and sunflower seed butter. I think that will last us for a good while, at least for our base foods. We’ll still be buying produce of course. I’m pretty pumped about our spice/tea box I composed for our camp kitchen. It smells so good! Now I am mostly concerned about bears. I spotted a $300 bear-safe cooler yesterday so I’m seriously considering that. It would just be so much weight lifted off my back just knowing I have a good amount of storage for food stuff. I don’t want to live out of a small bear can all summer.
I guess that’s all for now.. we’ll see how often I get around to updating ;)
