I'm not sure you have a mosey mode.
I need some details on this. How many days, mileage, etc..?
Great TR! It looks like you all have a great time together. And thanks so much @scatman for the "what's under the kilt" photo , classic!
Awesome bear tracks and Grizzly viewings! It's not every day you spot a Grizzly just before bathing
Out front on boat- @TractorDoc knows where the best seat is.
I don't understand how you and @TractorDoc can hike with a 55-60 lbs backpack. Guess you are strong & very fit! Do you each carry 2 gallons of whiskey to get to the 55-60lbs?
I burdened myself with an extra 10lbs. of cameras/extra batteries/power bank this year. Food weighed in at 18lbs. Hugh will tell you that I pack too many pairs of socks, so I'm sure the weight adds up there.Do you each carry 2 gallons of whiskey to get to the 55-60lbs?
On our 10 day trip into the Winds this year I packed only pemmican for food. My food (not including my ursack) was about 6.5 pounds. That was about 22,000 calories worth of pemmican. We go heavy in other areas, though, so I'm far from the ultralight category.
I'd say it's an acquired taste. I've been eating it for a few years now, and I still haven't acquired the taste. I don't season it with anything but a little bit of salt. I really can't come up with anything to explain what it tastes like. It's nothing like anything else I've ever eaten. This was the first trip I've eaten it exclusively. I will say that by the end it wasn't as much of a chore.
I actually only ended up eating about 2/3 of it. I had full bars that were the full thousand calories each, and half bars. I'd usually have a half bar for breakfast, then another half on the trail if I felt like it, and another half or whole at dinner (if I skipped the mid-day). I never ate more than two full bars in a day though.
Definitely. At home, I've eaten a meat only diet for about the last 10 months at home, which is why I went all pemmican this year. I didn't want to do anything out there that might upset my system. I only eat once or twice a day at home. It's also not like we were doing double digit miles every day. We had some tough days, but aside from 11 miles in, everything else was 7 or less. Just a lot of up and down.
