Moving the last of the supply drops......
We mailed out three of our thirteen supply drops Saturday. My good friend FJ(Fast Jerry) will send our supplies out to the post offices along the trail.

Ok, so here is my gear list,
and no, Rocky isn't part of the gear although I wish he was coming along (my vet friend said he needs to lose five lbs & I can't afford the extra weight ;-)

REI trekking poles peak UL ..... 12.5 oz

Mountain Hardware Phantom 15 bag ..... 1lb 14oz
SteriPEN water purifier ..... 2 oz
Therma rest prolite 3 sleeping pad (short) ..... 13oz
Black diamond mega-Mid lite tent ..... 1lb 14oz
Gregory advent pro adventure race pack (XSmall) ..... 1lb 12oz
Western States 2-bottle water waist pack
Ground cloth - Tyvek
Two large stuff sacks - one with 4lbs of food; the other with clothes.
Two small stuff sacks - one with emergency stuff and the other has tooth brush, sponge, & soap
Notice my flip flops I made? Montrail insoles with two rubber bands to keep them on -- for hanging out at camp ..... they weigh nothing

Sorry I didn't have time to write a better list but this will have to do for those of you who asked.

Everything back in the pack. it's all ready to go! Oh, my aching shoulders - LOL!!

Hey Catra, Best wishes for your adventure!! BTW, I love your camp shoes. :) I know what you're going thru with regard to Rocky; when I did the AT years ago, I had to leave my pooch behind, but of course, it will all be worth it. Good luck!

Brad said...

Hey Sue you are one of my running idols :)
Thanks for the post.
I hope you're running AC100 this year. I should be back to run Wasatch, AC & Rio Del Lago.
My little 3 in a row 100 challenge I like to do every year.
Not sure if your running WST 100 if you are best of luck.
I hope I see you soon. you are amazing.
P.S yes it's hard leaving Rocky behind.
