Thank goodness, Don had the foresight to stock up on supplies the past couple of months. We have a good 4+ months supply of food, etc, and have decided to take an extended camping trip. Don recently purchased a mobile hotspot, (reminds me of a hockey puck) so we could keep track of the news while we're camping. We also have a nice gas powered compact yamaha inverter generator which will make life on the island much more pleasant on such a long camping trip!
Don has already made 1 trip out to the island to cache supplies, which includes several boxes of fish fry, and canisters of Season-All. He thinks I overdid it on the seasonings but I have my reasons! We both got our fishing licenses as we expect to be eating a lot of fish in the next couple of months! We also stocked up on a variety of the Knorr pesto, alfredo noodle and rice packets, as well as instant potatos, which are a staple when camping in the wilderness. Additionally we stocked up on items with long shelf lives such as my favorite jerky and tropical trail mix as well as spaghetti (Don's favorites)!
The following pic shows the well hidden shallow passage to the island, that is only accessible by using our trolling motor!
Home sweet home for the next several months until the pandemic has subsided!
Hopefully things won't get that bad but it never hurts to have a backup plan....Spent so much time exploring the wilderness these past several years, never knowing that the knowledge we accumulated in tracking wildlife could come in real handy in the near future.
Any way, it may be quite a while before I post again! Praying that a vaccine is developed soon for this terrible pandemic! At least we have a nice place to stay that is totally isolated from the general population and the outside world. This is going to be quite an adventure!
