Nothing’s complete, despite the 8 months of prepping.  The race of Flagyl antibiotics I got in Mexico in some way has disappeared, and  I don’t receive a brand new journal.  My confidant Kat  disappeared into LAX today by my camera in her purse.  The bug repellant won’t be needed for many miles, and the bandana and whistle could every one of do with a bit of qualification.  I also do not be in possession of a water bottle.

I’m forgetting about the antibiotics viewed like there’s nothing else to subsist done, Kat’s overnighting the camera, I’ll enjoin the bug stuff in the float box at the first opportunity, and I’ll influence the bottle from a store.  Bandana and whistle I don’t in truth care about, and I may esteem a  journal somewhere in the front .  Or, there’s one in the ~ed pile box and I can use the some I’ve been using for the drilling hikes until then.

I’d liking to weigh everything but I hold the total is around 13 lbs, with fuel, no water or food.  Not verily ultra-light these days but I’m rejoiced.
