Our alarm went off at 4:15AM, and we were off at 5AM after a breakfast consisting of foot-long tootsie rolls, bananas, and oatmeal with raisins. The sky was dark and cloudy to start, and we didn’t see our shadows until 9AM.
We woke early and assembled more items to send home before leaving the park. This one is a big deal, because we finally made the leap to give up on cooking. We also sent clothes and other miscellaneous items, which allowed Rachel to get rid of her rear bags! I’m not sure if my bike got any lighter (I inherited her clothes and sleeping gear, but gave up some food and the cooking set), but it’s exciting to see such a significant change for her!
