At $5 a pound that's 60 lbs.
Could be a short lifetime.
Especially if you eat the year's supply in a month.

in todays supermarket standards, what does 454 grams weigh after cooked to medium?
barely enough for 2 BLT sandwiches [B)]
One BLT a week each is not going to have much effect over other products consumed []

I dunno, I haven't eaten supermarket bacon in a long time.
Out here in the valley you can harvest the rashers straight from the swine trees.

Twenty five years ago next year, I soloed the Northwest Ridge of Mt Sir Donald up in Rogers Pass. I have been thinking that it would be awesome to do the route again.

Something is going down in 2013 but its 50/50 between Mt. Logan, either King Trench or East Ridge, or finishing Cho Oyu (perhaps Shish if the govt won't issue permits again this year).

I'm hoping that declaring in public will add motivation

I find that declaring goals in advance is a good way to jinx things so they never happen. Case in point I went to Talchako in 2004 and saw the Borealis Peaks and said "I am going back to climb these". Sadly, still haven't been able to get back in there.

Funny how, for many of us, this is only too true. But then, there are those who can make these plans long range and follow them through...

Keep moving, get outdoors more often in the fall, winter & spring. Keep raising the bar for more strenuous & challenging hikes once summer comes.

Want to do the Mt Baker area, lots of great trip reports coming from here lately) & possibly a couple weeks in the Rockies this summer.

Some specific local destinations on my list, nothing heroic by CT standards but I haven't done any of these yet:

Black Tusk
Mt Price
Webb & MacDonald
Cheam & Lady
Crown Mtn
Anvil Island/Leading Peak
Lions & Brunswick
Vicuna & Guanaco
Yak & Nak
Snass
Rainbow Mtn
Golden Ears
Brandywine Meadows/Mtn
Cook & Weart
