So today was the first day I was involved in what they call an ‘Outfitting’. Basically you help wealthy families pack basic equipment they already have at home, for a camping trip they could easily plan and pack themselves, but are charged an unnecessary amount and sent off with food that will most likely leave them with diabetes. A big learning curve for me it was.
The outfitting’s range from 2 to 12 people, for 3 to 10 days, keeping in mind varying portions for different groups as well – wah! We packed the camping essentials like sleeping bags, tents, bug spray and cooking kits all the way to daily meals, snacks, medical and navigational equipment. One of the perks of working here means that we have access to all this equipment, camping permits AND canoes/kayaks FO FREE! I guess its going to be a great summer!
