I’m taking off next week on what I plan to be a 7-8 day backpacking trip in local territory. I haven’t done seriously backpacking for decades, so not sure how it will turn out, but it’s a trip I’ve been thinking about for years. Got a 2-1/2 lb tent, titanium pots, beautiful Western Mountaineering sleeping bag, freeze-dried food…equipment I couldn’t have dreamed of back in the 60s with Kelty pack and lots of poundage in Tuolomne Meadows and Big Sur forays.
I’ll be away from electronics, not to mention electricity, for a week. Paul Wingate used to talk about going to a remote cabin in the woods and getting away from “the 60-cycle hum.”
I’ve put up posts so there should be one a day while I’m gone. A friend asked yesterday, will you be taking pictures. Ha!
