The next three days are filled with getting ready for our month long expedition. After looking at various options of getting to our end destination, we decided to do an up and back which will be over 450 miles. We have the time and we should be able to resupply with food and water along the way. Our boats will be heavy as we are planning on taking 20 days worth of food and 12 days worth of water. There won't be many available spaces left in our kayaks. This is one of the many things I like about kayaking though. With what we plan on taking we should be able to keep food stress and water stress to a minimum. A trip to Mulege is as always a trip down memory lane. Several of the store keepers have been here since the early 80's and remember Don and I. We are able to purchase all the last minute items, give a quick chat to the boys and then head back to finalize our packing. Many of our Mexican friends are here and we catch up on their lives. They give us some warnings that this year being El Nino has been quite windy and cold. Not exactly what we wanted to hear. The wind is dying down tonight which is a good omen for an early morning start. We move our gear close to the beach and set the alarm for 4:30am.
