Goals for the first section of our trek north:
Day 1: No Blisters
Day 2: No Blisters + not dehydrated
Day 3: No Blisters + not dehydrated + no sunburn
Day 4: find resupply point
Day 5: Repeat day three
We went for a walk around the block today. It was a stunning spring day with flowers everywhere. Our feet hurt and Lauren stopped every block to adjust her fancy new sandals. Apparently sandals designed by indigenous populations and built with modern materials are hard…. We are soft.
One of my favorite lessons learned while ski touring certainly applies to our upcoming trip:
“Finish faster than you start”
I hope our initial five day plan is enough to ensure that the presumption in Eric’s quote, that we will finish, comes to fruition.
