GDT Food Haul + Long Weekend Food Shopping

We are heading out this weekend to go hiking for a few days. Since we have all of our food earmarked for the GDT, we needed to pick up food.

We are using the weekend to test out some new recipes.

Some items are just for the weekend, but we bought extra for the GDT when it made sense. Stocking up on rice, more Snickers and Almond Bars on sale.

More on the weekend hike later!

New Gear Day: Exped Synmat Duo Sleeping Pad

Hopefully the last item we purchase (other than food and consumables) before we head out on the Great Divide Trail this summer.


Overall the sleeping pad, stuff sack, and pump sack add about 100g compared to our current sleeping pad set-up, but when used with our MYOG quilt, we will save about 1kg and have a comfy gap-free sleep.
