Erwin and bust?

Day 50

Erwin Zero

Card of the day – none

Happy Birthday Kegstand! We all got breakfast at Maccies (I had some sweet bread thing called a McGriddle) and then we hit the resupply at Food City.

We sang happy birthday with a cupcake outside the store and I’m sure people thought we were crazy.  After this it was town chores like laundry and I just chilled in my room for a while.

Why is my food bag still so full?  Well maybe it has something to do with the amount of snacks I have.

So let’s talk about the resupply process!!!  It’s fair to say I got it really wrong coming out of Hot Springs.  I’m never eating Ramen and mash potatoes as long as I live.  I also don’t think I got the balance right between meals and snacks, and the 6 day window I would be on trail between time.

This time as I get ready to leave for 3 nights my food bag is again full.  Some of this is due to the fact you bulk buy in super markets, and some of it is just because I brought to much.  What I really need to do is look at how much I actually eat each day and buy appropriately.

The 6 pack of beer surly don’t help!

Any way I was chatting to my mum on WhatsApp, and that always cheers me up.

Later in the day I was also able to chat to my dad and 2 of my sisters.  I must admit to feeling a little home sick after this.

The trip to Erwin was expensive, and we need to try not to hit town on a Sunday when everything is closed moving forward.  I hope however Kegstand enjoyed her birthday!
