I’m forgetting about the antibiotics for the re~on that there’s nothing else to subsist done, Kat’s overnighting the camera, I’ll impose the bug stuff in the ~ed pile box at the first opportunity, and I’ll persuade the bottle from a store.  Bandana and whistle I don’t in fact care about, and I may acquire a  journal somewhere in the front .  Or, there’s one in the object box and I can use the any I’ve been using for the drill hikes until then.

I’d the tender passion to weigh everything but I compass the total is around 13 lbs, with fuel, no water or food.  Not even ultra-light these days but I’m auspicious.
