So much of my AT prep consists of myriad small tasks. Today I was able to have one serious work out with weights, walk for 3 hours, pick up the bras I ordered (1 to wear when I start and a size smaller for later), determine what size Crocs to get for camp, and I finally order the Crocs, my vitamins, knee braces, and a few cans of powdered whole milk.
I might finally be getting a handle on my mail drops … trying hard to not frame this as an insurmountable task. The most difficult part has been all the unknown factors. Still so much to do but I’m nailing things down bit by bit.
I still need a pair of pants to start with. The ones I bought a while back are a bit too lightweight. I also need a sleeping bag liner and I want to upgrade my cook system from JetBoil to something more versatile. And I have not yet gotten a knife. Other than that … yeah food!
Oh and after reading some recent reviews, seriously considering going with an Sawyer inline filter over the AquaMira. It comes out to costing and weighing only a tiny fraction more and the Sawyer gives you FILTERED water instantly where the AquaMira gives you unfiltered water with dead things in 30 minutes.
HAHAHAHAHA! okay when I word it THAT way ….. 😀
I found the perfect hiking/workout bra for me. no wires, smooth non-cotton satin, the back band is wide breathable mesh. the straps are padded and attached to the back band in such a way that the straps are unlikely to slip off shoulders. And you can get it in neutrals or fun colors.
