Getting ready to go trekking...

Luckily I was able to make most of my clothes for trek.  Mom was nice enough to make 2 dresses for me (because I can't follow a pattern).  I made 3 sets of bonnets, aprons and bloomers.  I also took the collars off Jake's shirts so they looked more authentic.

Since we were head of a family we had to take a bunch of stuff for everyone.  We had to take 2 dutch ovens, a big pot, spoons, knives, dish soap, a hatchet, rope, etc, etc.  And I was able to make it all fit into this small rubbermaid container.  

As for our personal clothing, scriptures, and any extras (but really not much), were to fit them into a 5-gallon bucket.  It all worked out really well and then we had the bucket to sit on.
