Preparing for our six-month Continental Divide Trail adventure is one of the most challenging parts of the whole journey! Porter has planned his route from the Mexican to the Canadian border, applied for camping permits in Glacier and Yellowstone, made or customized most of his ultralight gear, downloaded the map apps on both of our cell phones, and much more. This 11-second video shows him getting ready to figure out and bag portions of food for breakfasts, snacks, lunches, and dinners. And this is just the first installment, like maybe a week’s worth?!
We’re both full speed ahead on getting our house, landscape, finances, and every aspect of our lives in order. My preparations range from car maintenance to hotel reservations to packing to getting my hair done to cleaning the house, especially sweeping chia seeds off the floor.
Amber is busy packing her own food supplies, consisting entirely of chocolate bars.
Continental Divide Trail, here we come!
