Today is the day! Jordan and I leave for two weeks and venture off to Zion, Bryce Canyon, Alstrom Point, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Sedona, Grand Canyon, Havasupai, & end it with partying in Las Vegas for a day! I haven’t taken this much PTO to do anything like this & so excited for a much deserved break from the daily routine.
We lugged two large hiking backpacks, two day packs, & one suitcase in a Lyft SUV at 4:30am this morning. I was ready to pay the overweight fee of $100/each, but surprisingly each of our packs were under fifty pounds. YAY! We packed (unpacked & packed like four times) 8 days worth of freeze dried food, clothing, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, hammocks, a tent, electrolyte tablets, four packs of beef jerky, a ton of clif bars, GoPro, portable chargers, lanterns, headlights, extra batteries, towels, swimming gear, a compass, my ankle brace, sandals, trekking poles, water filtration systems, kitchenware, card games to play, a frisbee, duct tape strips, rope, lots of sunscreen, dry shampoo, hand sanitizer, first aid kit, toothbrush, toothpaste, biodegradable wipes & soap, toilet paper, garbage bags, a pocket shower (probably will be the best seven minute stream of a shower), body glide, ziplock bags, a machete, and of course, feminine hygiene products (because of course that time of the month would happen during this big trip).
This is the first time I packed light for Vegas. One swimsuit, one day dress, one night dress (because usually I bring four and need help choosing only one), one pair of false eyelashes, one pair of heels, a curling iron, a sticky bra, one eyeshadow palette (because for some reason I bring two or three) & other makeup essentials. My top priority when getting to Vegas? Eat at Shake Shack. Then party.
In my bullet journal, I started a hiking log in the beginning of Spring. After writing our planned hikes for our adventure, we will be hiking about seventy miles in two weeks. We will be Vegas-bod ready in no time!
Now that I’m typing this out, I think I forgot deodorant. Anyway, I am super excited to share with you all this exciting adventure! ❤ More to come!
