Bugaboos - Day 9, Cold and Hungry

The old forecast, hanging on the kiosk, predicted today would be the day the skies clear. The new forecast, just now hanging up, says otherwise and is indeed correct. It's rainy and windy out, and we're very much confined to our tents. Next time I come here I will go down when the forecast predicts bad weather.

Sitting for a whole day isn't that easy. After a while you get cold. It's comforting to be able to eat rich foods and have hot drinks all day long. We have limited amounts of tea and few extra snacks. Eating out of boredom is out of the question. Next time I will bring more indulgent foods - chocolate, Nutella, hot cocoa.

I obsessively sort food in my tent. Anything that's extra is starting to get eaten. After dinner we begin to eat extra instant oatmeal packets. I don't really like instant oatmeal. We're eating it like it's fine dessert.
