Planning The first Big Trip of 2013

Some of the contributors at Avoiding Chores and I are heading to Maine to climb Mount Katahdin in June. For most of us it will be our first trip there and we are all excited.

Now I have to prepare to make sure I can complete the hike. I am trying to eat better cutting out sweets,  junk food and prepackaged food. Focusing on fresh food and portion control. I am currently walking everyday and hiking with a pack on the week ends. This will be soon followed by weight-training and running.

With the physical component in the works I need to figure out what to wear and bring for the trip. If any one has any tips or advice please pass it along
