We were up at six and Simon was on the road with the motor home by 7.30. I followed about 15 minutes later. It was, in few words, another moving day.
I am amazed at how much we are getting done. Although, I have to admit that while I was at OK Tire, waiting for Simon to be done with the mechanic, I gazed up at the blue sky, basked in the warm sun, noted Mount Prevost and thought how wonderful it would be to spend such a perfect day hiking up a mountain.
However, I also know that what we are doing right now is far more important. This work is what is going to get us up mountain after mountain – in a very short time.
We packed – a lot – and drove back here. I am still amazed that I managed to get all the food from Simon’s kitchen into my very tiny one – and that includes a half-size fridge. Mind you, one must open the freezer door with due caution. I have already been hit in the head with a bag of peas.
As for the cupboards – anyone looking for dried food, canned food and spices must first take a half hour orientation course – and a GPS may be necessary to find anything needed for say – a spaghetti supper.
In order to create space, I also did a run to the recycling depot today – got rid of stuff that formerly occupied cupboard space. I went on the assumption that if it had lived in my cupboards this long, I likely didn’t need it.
Then off to VPO for a truckload of Backpacker Pantry food (and socks of course – can you have too many hiking socks?)
Then Thrifty Foods (Right – just what we needed – more food to stuff into overflowing cupboards.)
