Andrew and Billy left early this morning to meet up with my brother to go on an overnight backpacking trip. We all love to hike! This will be Billy's first overnight trip.

I took these pictures last night as they were preparing to go. They both got new packs last year. Andrew for his birthday and Billy for Christmas. This will be the first time they are getting to use them.

Their food is all organized and ready to be added to the packs.

I bought them all kinds of convenience snack type foods that I never buy. Boy is that stuff expensive!!

Their food plan is: lunch-summer sausage, cheese, triscuits, dried fruit; dinner-canned chicken mixed with instant potatoes that I added some milk powder and gravy mix to. They'll heat that all up with water on their stove along with some hot tea to drink; breakfast-instant oatmeal packets, poptarts, and dried fruit, more hot tea.

They have cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers, peanuts, and lots of candy to snack on.

Tommy and I, along with Nathan, my nephew, will be meeting them tomorrow morning to join them for a day hike.

We'll spend the night at home where it will be much warmer than the mid-20's that are forecast for the mountain where the older boys will be sleeping tonight.
