Ready or Not…

Yesterday was an important, busy day for the WAND team. We spent $315 and performed numerous calculations at the grocery store (26 servings of trail mix would be how many ounces?). We familiarized ourselves with the camp stove. We figured out which of our four tent options we’ll be using and when. Tyler and Jeremy did a phone interview with a North Dakota newspaper. We made sure our water resupply points were adequate. And so on.

We still have a fair amount of work to do today before driving to our drop-off point, but we accomplished a lot yesterday. We’re also glad that the weather forecast looks good for western North Dakota for the next several days.

This is our last post before heading out on the trail. We are planning to post an update at a public library a few days into our journey. We’re also hoping to make some other posts along the way, but aren’t certain about computer access. In the meantime, enjoy a few photos from yesterday:
