The Bowdoin Outing Club encourages students to dream, organize and lead outdoor trips. This fellowship offers the financial support to shape the most creative and adventurous outdoor visions into real opportunities. The expedition should foster a spirit of adventure and encourage personal challenges and skill development and in the end, contribute to the growth of the Bowdoin Outing Club.

The Food Prep Begins!

With the two of us back in the same state, we've begun preparing the food we'll be carrying with us. We started with dehydrating sweet potatoes and onions, followed with a "Hannaford Expedition" to buy all the non-perishable foodstuffs we didn't have, and continued with drying tomato paste, mushrooms, apples, and blueberries. There is, of course, much more to dry, but for the time being, here are a few photos of what we've been up to...

Loading the groceries into our packs. (We brought our backpacks along to add to the atmosphere of the expedition.)

Spreading the tomato paste

Tomato paste that will become tomato sauce on the trail.

On an exciting side note, the maps came today!!!
