Day -4

Here’s most of my stuff! Altogether I’d put it about 18lbs, 35lbs with food, water and fuel. I’d honestly rather not know the exact weight so I can convince myself that it’s lighter than it really is.

That trowel? That’s for burying human waste. Millions of people make a number-2 in the woods every day, and that’s probably a fact. So why bury it? Poo decomposes a bit underground where the critters are. Plus it’s hidden form contaminating water sources and the bottom of your shoes. Hey, it could be worse, some places (Denali, Rainier, Hood) require you to pack it out!
