Prepping for 50 Days
We picked up the A-Liner and were impressed with our new home for the summer. Four-burner stove. Microwave. Running water with sink. Electrical for our laptops. Plenty of headroom. You can sleep four but only if they're two couples. Four guys in this thing would be awkward. We're into backpacking and tent camping but living like this will be luxurious and could spoil us. Spoil away.
We have been packing and it's daunting. How many t-shirts can I wear and re-wear before I absolutely have to wash them and hang them to dry? What foods to take? A shovel for fire and poop disposal, hatchet and saw for wood, tarp, propane, and the list goes on. The A-Liner has an amazing amount of storage but knowing us, we'll fill it to the brim.
We're using three Sage rods from our friends at Riverfields in Amarillo, plus we're trying out the new wading Pursuit sandal/boots from Simms, a hybrid shoe ideal for our guerilla, lightweight style of fishing. We leave June 7th and we have lots to do before then.
