At least 10km a day, almost every day, often more.
Obviously, I didn't blog anything further about my preparations, and that's because they weren't very interesting. I decided to abandon this journal until I was actually on the road, WHICH I AM!...
I ended up not taking the aqua socks. They are comfy enough for light activity, but they made my feet sweaty pretty quickly.
So for the last couple of years, I've mostly been wearing aqua socks: they've got little to no heel drop and they are very lightweight and comfortable. I also never get sore feet or a sore back since...
Well...there's South America
Vancouver and Victoria (especially Victoria), BC: any season but autumn is both beautiful and holiday-friendly.
Oh my gosh, yay for you!
I was diagnosed with this a couple of years ago when I presented with jaundice. My doctor (whom I trust) said it wasn't anything to really worry about as long as I don't drink to excess (I don't know...
Offal: my parents took me out for Brazilian when I visited them at Christmas. I had these amazingly delicious skewers of chicken hearts. They were slightly chewy and tasted more like red meat than...
I am dealing pretty well with getting all my preparations in order, I've just got a couple of money things to work out, but nonetheless have had some anxiety the last week. It's been mostly...
Good luck! I'm thinking of you and hoping!
Thanks for the heads up, and I'm all in order. As long as I have my receipt for the meat, which I do, I am fine to bring it across the border.
Here are the relevant paragraphs on that, in case...
I'm giving my notice at work tomorrow (officially, I mean. Everyone's known for a while that I'm leaving).
I dehydrated some ground bison. This is amazing, I dehydrated 5.5 lbs of ground bison,...
Baking soda, sometimes coconut oil+xylitol
Haha, yeah, I'd love some sugar and peanuts wrapped in plastic, thank you!
"The Art of Imperfection" is another book worth looking at
Yes, it's time to stand up and stretch and shake off winter.
I don't share your faith but I'm not faithless :)
Thanks for the induction into Spring!
Yeah, but there are large sections of just camp-and-trail, especially through national parks, where even though they may have food for sale, it won't be fresh stuff, but more "convenience foods".
I eat below 10 grams of carbohydrate almost every day because it keeps my depression and anxiety completely in check, and also seems to quell any obsessive food behaviours (there's not much to obsess...
Creamed coconut is a good option. It's like dehydrated coconut milk with a hunk of fat attached, you just add hot water and froth it up. A little goes a long way for your buck.
It feels like the time is flying by until I leave, but also like it can't come fast enough!
I researched how to dehydrate potatoes: I need to boil them first, leave them in the fridge overnight to...
There's a pretty flower you can make with those pineapples: How to Make Dried Pineapple Flowers | Annie's Eats
LOL you just reminded me of when I was super broke a couple of years ago: we got to the point where we only had one lightbulb left, and my roommate and I would move the lightbulb from room to room.
