This and that

I just finished dehydrating two pounds of ground turkey and two jars of spaghetti sauce into 8 portions of dried stuff. I'll include 3 ounces (dry) of pasta and some Parmesan cheese and there you have it. Tasty!

That makes 16 spaghetti meals… add this to the Mac and Cheese meals and the Chicken Chili and I've still got a lot to do. Oh well, one foot in front of the other I guess.

Something exciting happened yesterday. I received my permission from Canada to enter via the PCT! It only took a couple of weeks so I guess this is why it's good to do this bureaucratic stuff early. Details, details, details!

One last thing for today. As of yesterday I've lost a total of 21 pounds! I still hope to lose another 4 or so before leaving on my trip but even if I don't, still this will help with my energy levels and my ability to carry the water weight that will be required of all of us this year. Unless something very remarkable happens in the next two months, natural water sources will be few and far between. Well, no need to fret as what is, will be and there ain't no use fighting against it. I'll just have to go with the flow…
