This weekend Kyle and I are going to try something new. We are going to hike a small portion of the Appalachian Trail! A little known fact, there is actually an Appalachian Trail stop on the Metro-North Railroad about 2 hours north of NYC.
Rather than re-hash his article, I will let you read this short description by Jeff Thrope for the New York Times.
We plan on doing the out and back version, I'll let you know how this ends up!
Meanwhile, here are my preliminary thoughts about food:
Saturday Breakfast: on the train.
Saturday Lunch: Pre-made PB&J, apples, carrots, celery, etc.
Saturday Dinner: Saltines, hard cheese, salami, fruits and veggies, whiskey
Sunday Breakfast: Oatmeal with fruit, Coffee
Sunday Lunch: Anything we have leftover?
This is kind of a conundrum for me, we won't really be going that far or away for that long, but we also will be without a method for keeping things cool or heating them up (the Sunday morning coffee is going to be just a rough grind of bean soaked in cold water overnight... it's an experiment).
Any thoughts on food that would make this easier / more fun?
