After heading back from the mountains, we decided to take a day before we head on the road to our trip that we would need to go get a wool blanket and new boots from REI and take some time to plan our route. (At REI, I learned that they do not make women’s boots under size 6 anymore. The kids ones are not as supportive though, so this was a little bit frustrating. I like the boots that I chose, but if you know of any women’s boots brands that sell size 5.5, let me know.)
We will be camping in the snow so we wanted to be sure we were able to handle the freezing temperatures. We spent the day at Jeremy’s brother, Brandon’s house. Kai enjoyed running in the fields of crops nearby. We enjoyed resting a day before heading off into the wilderness, but we are excited to hit the road!
