Awesome stuff Viper!  Too bad my Brother and I didn't run into you or your group at the hot springs this time.  I blame it on my Brother.  He's getting married on the 30th of this month so  that naturally threw a wrench into our yearly BB trip.

Just curious how a veterano does it. how many days zone camping? If extended zone camping what was your grub?

i carried 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 2 dinners. really simple, not very nutritious meals made it light enough to carry  :eusa_whistle:

breakfast consited of 2 nature valley granola bars, lunch was some nut + fruit mix and 2 peanut butter cracker packages, one dinner was tortellini + packaged salmon and powdered alfredo, and the other was a lipton pasta side + a can of chicken breast. the tortellini would have required too much water if there wasn't a nearby source, so I would have had another package of lipton pasta.

my plan counted on being able to find water, and if i couldn't find any it would turn into just an overnighter.

congrats to your brother!  :eusa_clap:

I'll be out there again, and I know ya'll will (if the new lady allows  :eusa_whistle: ), so we'll meet up again  :icon_lol:

it's a rather old camera now, it's a digital rebel, the 300d with a 17-40 F4/L

currently saving for a 5d MKII  :eusa_boohoo:
