First batch of Dinners.

Begin the Resupply box packing

I have been able to start buying food, and begin packing the resupply boxes. When I did the Pacific Crest Trail, It took 3 months to pack almost 5 months of food. This time, I have 3 weeks to package 5 months of food, so it will have to be done like a production line.

It looks like Ill need 130 or so days of food for the trip, and the remaining 24 days will be in towns. The photo is dinners that are ready to go.

I noticed from other sources, that they don't do very many resupply packages ahead of time. I have to eat healthier as my skin becomes an issue. I don't know if the CDT has this problem, but it is possible on the PCT to empty a unsuspecting store with enough hikers, as such, I prefer to have food sent, and eat at the local restaurants and stores, while in town, but to have resupply boxes for the trail.

On the PCT, the lunches seemed to lack enough variety, so I am planning to very the food more. Your body will tell you when your getting to much of something, because you get tired of it. For me, it was nuts. Nuts are great trail food, but like anything to much of a good thing, isn't a good thing lol
