Care packages!

A few people have reached out asking how to send us stuff along the trail and what we might like- you guys are amazing!! Thank you thank you!
Things we will use:

Snacks: anything light and easy to pack/carry! fancy jerky for matt*, any flavor salted almonds, bada bean bada boom* (Matt’s sick of Sriracha, I am not!), peanut butter packets*, Gatorade powder* (blue is my fav!), condiment packets! Salsa, hot sauce, salt/pepper!*, Black cherry with caffeine Clif shot bloks*, anything fun and delish that might not be easy to grab along the trail!* (But also easy to find on trail stuff- goldfish, check mix, cracker sandwiches, Cliff bars, hot chocolate packets, etc!) Wait!!! HOMEMADE COOKIES!!!!* Omg yes! I can buy powdered coconut milk to really, fully enjoy the experience!! For packaged stuff, we can split up servings into what we need for the next stretch, then mail ourselves boxes further up the trail!!! It’s the gift that really keeps on giving!

Other less fun but frequently needed things: badger face sunscreen stick*, zip lock bags (just a few varied sizes if you can spare:)), chapstick with spf* (zinc oxide ones?), little sunscreen bottles* (unscented! We are using banana boat sport, spf 50, but at our last resupply they only had 30…)
We are so touched that people offered to send stuff- please don’t feel like you need to, but believe me- we will appreciate anything and everything, even your cheering us on on our blog and Instagram posts!!
