Appalachian Trail Map

60 days to go!

Finally decided to use for my trail journal. The integrated map and ability to email journal entries are what finally convinced me.

We're still busy dehydrating and finishing up acquiring gear. I've been testing recipes so we can start assembling meals soon. We decided to prep our meals in advance and have them sent to us along the trail. My hiking buddy Ken is gluten intolerant, so since he was going to have to ship all of his food, we might as well do the same.

So far I've dehydrated over 100 batches of food, everything from black beans to salsa. For dinners, the bases are rice, pasta, black beans, and potato flakes. To add to that are mixed vegetables, spinach, soup vegetables, and peppers with onions. To top off the protein, there's ham, turkey, chicken, salmon, and sausage. For variety we will add pepperoni, quinoa, TVP, and smoked salmon (picked up at an after Christmas sale).
