In April I'm happy to report that I've got a several day backpacking trip planned and I'm pretty excited about it because it will be the first time in 2011 I've been able to push away from work and family obligations long enough to stretch my trail legs. I was moving some of my backpacking stuff around when I was inspired to better organize four large food boxes. The result, aside from organization, was the realization that I clearly need to backpack more or buy less food. Seriously, I could outfit a thru-hiker at this point.... I probably had 200 food items and maybe 400 packets of condiments.
