Just for the record, I had to throw away an estimated $553 worth of food. Sigh. Not enough to meet the insurance deductible. Just one of those painful losses. The fruits and things that I had spent a lot of time picking and processing are what hurt the most to toss out. Everything that could be saved easily fits in the small freezer of the fridge.
There was a lot of spoiled meat juice on the wood frame that I had built to hold the baskets, but a good scrubbing with clorox pretty much took care of that. It spent the night outside. I was hopeful that no animals would come chew on it, and none did.
I'm not even going to plug the freezer in and use it until after the big hike. I wouldn't be able to get enough food in it in the next two months to make it even remotely efficient. And Om doesn't really keep any things in it.
In other news: I am just about done with all the formatting for Dead Mule Swamp Singer. I also worked on the trailer this afternoon and made some good progress. Perhaps that will be tomorrow's post. My list is up to 58 things to do by 12/1, and I have crossed off 8. TO DO- 50 things: 65 days.
