Food Packages Away!
This weekend we drove down to Ryden's to mail off our food packs. 9 boxes in total. We were expecting to pay about $500 and were pleased to discover that it topped out at about $150. Apparently FED-EX loves us. No trouble getting through the border as Em was smart enough to call ahead and have them expect us. The Ryden's folks were very kind and patient as we hauled in two months worth of food boxes and went a little crazy with the packing tape.
Here you'll find pics of us doing food prep. The vacuum bagging machines that we tried didn't work too well so it ended up being me trying not to inhale too much icing sugar as we removed the air with a straw.
