In this episode, dad and I discuss ideas for packing. What to take. What can be left behind. How this trip is different from the SNP trip. Desert hiking with a base camp site will allow us more flexibility to have comforts readily at hand. Things we will want in the desert but didn’t have for the forest include: binoculars, harmonica, podcasting gear, jugs of water, extra blankets, different hats, and so on. For about 15 mintues (starting at 30 minute mark), we also discuss the creepy crawlies we’ll likely encounter. Scorpions, centipedes, spiders, snakes, ants, and so on. That’s pretty much it. We are obviously more relaxed about his trip than the last, only because we plan to take day hikes that return to our base campsite every day. On the SNP, the plan was to hike into the woods for 7 days with everything loaded into our backpacks. Not happening this time. (Didn’t happen last time either, for those who followed that trip.) Anyway, long ramble over…
