Friday, July 24, 2015, Home: Almost there

There is absolutely no way I could attempt this hike without Steve’s love and support. I am forever grateful

I can’t believe it. After months of thought and preparation, I hit the trail this weekend. My resupply boxes are ready, my food has been prepared (with a 1.5 pound per day average), my gear has been researched and purchased, and I’m ready to go.

Easy Cheesy Pasta, my simplest and favorite meal. 800 calories of carbs and fat...what's not to love?

Peanut M&Ms and Snickers. It's what's for dinner. And breakfast. And lunch...

Resupply boxes for White, Chinook, Snoqualmie, and Stevens passes, plus another for Stehekin, near the end of my hike.

The night before I left, the guys took me out to one of my favorite restaurants. They were their usual wacky selves.

And finally, today. After long goodbyes with the boys, Steve and I left for points south, around noon. Today’s destination was a B&B on the way to Mt. Adams.

Predictably, traffic was a nightmare, but we finally at the Shepherd’s Inn in Salkum. We checked in, and relaxed on the patio for a while, watching a couple of young fawns who pranced around like they owned the place.

We went out for dinner, and then just put our feet up and watched a movie. Tomorrow…
