WISDOMS

TECH

  • I carry and I strongly, strongly, strongly recommend a Garmin inReach Mini.
    It weighs like, gosh I wanna say it weighs about 2 or 3 ounces,
    it weighs nothing and it pairs with your phone.

FOOD

  • Food is about 1.5 pounds a day

  • Looking for dense calories

  • Super Butter – Peanut Butter and cube of butter

  • Super Butter Sandwich – super butter smeared on a marshmallow

  • Instant Mash Potatoes

  • Oatmeal

  • Add Bacon Grease for calories

  • Tortillas and then I’ll carry out a hard block of cheese like extra sharp cheddar and pair that with
    like usually summer sausage, hard salami or pepperoni.

  • Squeeze bottle with Hot Sauce

  • Kettle Chips for the crunch

  • Bagels with cream cheese; I pack up cream cheese when it’s like 110 degrees
    out and if you pack it right inside your pack, keep it in a zippy.

THRU HIKING

  • My favorite kind of stretch is that one that’s like, you get to town on the night of the fifth night.
    Five full days out, it’s like a pretty comfortable carry.

FEET

  • Trail Runners are the way to go, they’re the way to go because they’re light.
    You can expect to change them every 500-600 miles.

  • Take that first 5-10 minutes and wash your socks; get a nice smooth stone
    and get all the dirt out of there and then just loop them on your pack in a
    tight way so that they can dry throughout the day

  • Listen to your feet. If you’re having really bad foot problems that are
    just chronic, change up your footwear

SLEEP

  • It’s good to get at least 9 hours of sleep out on a trail I would say, you’re putting your
    body through the ringer with how much you’re active, so it’s really important.

MINDSET

  • You interact differently, you appreciate things more,
    I think you’re just more open as a person.

  • As soon as you’re able to, buy your plane ticket because once your plane ticket’s bought you can say out aloud that you’re going, cause you have a plane ticket that’s booked and its harder to get out of it.

  • Pay attention to the year you’re gonna hike, how much snow the Sierras get etc.

  • You just kind of have to manage and adapt whatever is thrown at you by the trail-gods!
