  1. The 21 oz of almond butter and 1 oz of Cop. make an unruly pair.

  2. hummm a stove but no cookable food. interesting...

  3. Came back with all but a cadbury bar's smearing of almond butter, but an empty can of Cope.....

  4. and Forrest carried freeze-dry for dinner and coffee for breakfast, but we only used the stove to "Thai-style" start the fire.

  5. this is badass. thanks dude


  6. take note:
    no gps.

  7. confession: Forrest carried it and I'd beg him for distance to waypoints -- but this route is pretty straightforward, really.
