That’s a lot of food!

Ok, bear with me here – I’m trying out posting from my iPhone since I’m not sure when I’ll have access to a computer once we hit Kinshasa next Wednesday. I’ve got a much longer post coming with more details on our timeline/pack out etc…but as I’m sitting here waiting for B I figured I’d give you all a taste of what our consumables pack-out looked like last week. Our food/toiletries and other consumables (items we will consume in Kin) are on their way to Africa and they weigh…drum roll…

One thousand five hundred and forty pounds. Yup.  1,540. 

That’s a LOT of food. 
Here’s what that looks like: 

 
In words that is four personally packed containers, one full flat and two full carts from BJ’s and various and sundry personal boxes and bags from Harris Teeter, Target, Trader Joe’s and speciality stores from Charlotte to Canada. 

Now the guessing game begins as to how long it will take to get to us…and, once it does, how long it will last. 

Luckily we still have almost 1,000 pounds we can send later…

  1. I kept trying to see what you chose to bring, because I wouldn’t know where to begin. I can’t to hear from you when you arrive in Kinshasa. Best of luck on your travels !
