One of the things that’s probably holding me back is that I don’t eat a very nutritious diet. So I’m trying to fit more fruits and veggies into my diet. I figure that’ll help with the joint aches and pains and my energy levels. So I ended up getting a little blender that uses it’s own bottle so you just swap out the lid and you’ve already got your stuff ready.
It’s making me think about food on the trail. It’s such a specialized thing, you want to have low weight things, stuff you can cook on a small stove, and that isn’t going to rot. I know I”ll need to do a lot of research to figure this out. It makes me wonder how people ever figure this stuff out.
Of course I need to get to the point where I can walk for an hour or two, let alone all day, before it matters. But I need to get back on track with everything. So my plan is at some point in June to make a list of gear I’ll need just for day hikes and put it in the list in priority order.
