Hey Look Chantal… We are in the 5’s
Always crazy to think that when I asked Chantal if she wanted to try to attempt this… we were close to 1,200 days away.
Camping & Hiking At Charleston Provincial Park | Sep 25 to 27th
This past weekend, Heidi and I headed to Charleston Provincial Park for two nights to test out the gear again and do some hiking. Chantal couldn’t come due to working and school.
A little bit of Thanksgiving to try and cook in our pots. Started with some instant stove-top stuffing mix and put in some instant mashed potatoes along with sliced bacon jerky and some flakes of turkey and mixed it all around with some boiling water to hydrate the potatoes and stuffing and gravy mix. I made some turkey gravy and poured it on along with some fried onions for some crunch at the end.
Three bags of wood was good for each night’s fire. We just cooked and sat around the fire and hit the sack around 9:30 pm on night one. In the morning we made oatmeal with dehydrated strawberries and apples for breakfast and cleaned up and got ready for our hike around the 12km loop.
We will plan another hike and this time it will be the three of us and we will only pack our packs for our supplies and practice on making everything fit including food and water. This time, we were toasty in our bags, so it would be nice to test out our sleeping bags in colder weather. We had rain and no leaks. I forgot my groundsheet for my tent. It’s a great park and it would be nice to visit again. We didn’t get in the water to swim since the day had a “fall chill” to the day with no Sun heating it up. It’s a nice park to visit and the backcountry sites would be cool to hike into. I’m sure they are hard to secure.
Podcast Listener Reached Out
Really nice message from someone near San Diego. LOL I’m always asking everyone to come with us. He has a little one that would make it tough. Hopefully, we can go out to lunch with his family when we touch down in California and spend a couple of days getting set up and going shopping for resupply food and some odd’s and ends.
Nights at Home Depot for cash has come to an end…
Nights are hard. Hours at Home Depot were dropping. I did appreciate the walking it takes and also the sweat equity. I need to replace that activity.
Updated Numbers On Podcast Views:
Still blows my mind that people would listen to us. I’m excited since we are just about to start interviewing people that have hiked the PCT. The hard part is working with my Daughters schedule. Excited to talk to hikers and learn more about their thru-hike.
“Little Foot” who is 4 years old just finished hiking the PCT. Crazy to think about!
You can see a little more about Little Foot here.
This hiker below is living in 2030. What a great idea for a long wait at the airport. Had to share.
One of Chantal’s friends emailed us $20 in the middle of the night.
So sweet of him to do so. Blew me away. We took the $20 and invested it with some stock of GDNP for 27 shares. We show how we track it below and where you can find it on our website.
