Today was spent primarily with a visit to the supermarket where we picked up what Tony and I think will be enough food for several days on the trail. Largely dry goods like rice, lentils, trail mix ingredients, etc. We were able to find most of what we were looking for but as my Dad likes to say, "What we don't have we'll just have to do without." Looking at the map, water should be widely available and is supposed to be safe to drink (primarily spring fed)--we are carrying a couple different ways to sanitize the water just in case and can each hold about 3.5 liters. We also filled up fuel bottles for our backpacking stove at one of the local gas stations--fortunately our stove runs on several different types of gas. It's also good news that we should only need about a liter of gas for about a week or more on the trail (supplemented with campfires as available), as regular unleaded here runs about ten dollars to the gallon.
For those familiar with the term "carbo-loading", we attempted our own version of it this evening with a trip to Burger King (yes, even ın Fethiye, Turkey). We figured we had earned ourselves this breakdown for American fast food since we're about to venture into the wilderness for a while.
At this point we feel we're about as prepared as we're ever going to be, and are just looking forward to starting the trail bright and early tomorrow. Thanks to everyone keeping up with the blog and we'll be sure to update as the Lycian Way allows.
