Caught eating the second half of my sandwich
The two portion technique worked great! I had 1/2 at 11:30 and 1/2 at 1:30 and wasn’t hungry all afternoon. Sans a handful of chocolate chip trail mix!
We left GH around 4:00 and walked a mile to our hotel, got some work done, and then headed back out at 5:30 for a 1.7 mile trek in the ice and snow to dinner with our new friends.
If we can do it, anyone can!
We met the rest of our crew at Sparky’s – my first and last Dillon, Montana meal!
Matt and I ordered beers – I am LOVING Kettlehouse Cold Smoke Scotch Ale!
For dinner I ordered the Smoked Salmon Caesar with Huckleberry Dressing instead of Caesar
The salad was good enough, but two nights of smoked fish for dinner was a bit much for me.
Matt got Catfish with sweet potato fries and shared a few of those sweet puppies
Plus he shared his cornbread for dessert
On our walk home we debated if humans naturally selected to have a preference for beer after 1) Long, hard work days and/or 2) Cold weather
We think that the fact that alcohol has 7 calories per gram might mean it was desirable for energy savings OR that the fermented beverage was the best source of potable “water” so we crave it when we’ve worked hard or need fluids from dry Western air.
What do you think!?
