Getting my home life in order

One thing people often don't think about is the preparation required to get your home life organized before leaving on a trip like this. Today I mailed several boxes of books and DVDs to various businesses that were kind enough to preorder (saving me hassles trying to arrange shipping from the trail,) I made an appointment to get some final pickup maintenance done (they missed something last time,) answered numerous emails, dealt with some of my rental cabins, learned more about my iPhone and how I'll do my journaling and updating of my online hike map, delivered some maple syrup and a whole lot more.

In the last few days I have also done more planning concerning my food and water caches, and chose my route for the drive south. There was a good view of Mt. McKinley from above Fairbanks when I was running into town for errands today.
