Resupply!

Who else buys their food for the next 5 months ahead of time?

Sometimes I think we are totally nuts!

Anna and I are almost done packaging food that we will mail to 12 different locations just off the Continental Divide Trail for our thru hike attempt this summer.  Every week or so we will cross a road/hike on a side trail to a road to then hitch to a nearby town to resupply. That includes picking up these tasty packages, taking a shower and putting our feet up for a little break before heading back to the Rocky Mountains.  It’s quite surreal to seal a box of food and imagine opening it up 5 months later, somewhere in New Mexico.

So what does each box contain?

Lots of high calorie, freeze dried, dehydrated goodies including: carbs, veg, fruit, nuts, seeds, lots of granola/protein bars, candy bars, sweets, and sometimes an item or two of gear, etc.

Can you send us treats to add to the mix?

ABSOLUTELY!! We will soon post the addresses of post offices we will swing by and we will welcome a postcard (preferably one made of chocolate or sweets) anywhere along the way!
