what a way to take a journey (sung to the Dolly Parton tune).
Every morning begins around 7am. Our morning routine takes us about two hours–sometimes more or less depending on whether or not we have oatmeal and hot tea for breakfast. Then its out on the trail we go. We take a break midmorning, eating a little nosh, then a couple of hours later we’re take a longer break for lunch. Depending on the miles we intend to hike, we will take an afternoon break also.
When we get into camp in the evening (between 5 and 6) we immediately set up our tent, hang the bear bag, filter water for dinner, breakfast and the next day. After that we make dinner, eat it, clean up and get ready for bed. This routine usually takes about a couple of hours also.
All of this is more difficult when its raining out.
