Food preps are under way!

Not only am I stocking up on foods and preparing meal size freezer bags, but I am testing other options. We tested a just add water option the other night and it was pretty good with enough pepper. So I made two freezer bags and added plenty of pepper. Here is some of what I've got so far:

I also have a bag of food in my pack for the weight. 

I got some ideas from fellow hikers and thought I'd give baking a go. My Birthday and Cody, and Justin's will all happen somewhere along the trail so I thought I'd try a brownie. This is how it turned out:

It went quick but, YUM!!

Oh, got my trail do

I got my trail hair on now, lol. I was debating letting it grow for a pony tail or cutting it off. It has been settled, I cut it off. My hair annoys me anyway so short isn't really an issue for me, my husband on the other hand, well he's not so happy about it. Oh, and in honor of my support for the Children's Hemiplegia & Stroke Association I died it!!

I think I will add more purple as the day gets closer.

My trip is sponsored by Emergen-C. I'll be sharing along the way with my fellow hikers.

It's Getting Real

I bought my bus ticket to Georgia and arranged transport to Springer Mountain. Going over my A.T. Guide and getting excited. Still need to get rain gear and a few other little things but I'll start hiking the 19th of April.
