Yesterday, after a painful five plus hours of organization and rations planning we bought food from two online bulkfood sources. The food total came to about $380, the shipping total came to about $105. Not entirely sure if buying bulk online and getting it shipped to Talkeetna was the best way to go though I don't imagine that buying food in the amounts that we need in Alaska would be much cheaper, nor would buying it here and shipping it ourselves.
We still have at least a couple hundred dollars to spend on food when we get to Alaska, not to mention the booze putting as way over our food budget.
We're both pretty strapped for cash, I know Jacon's running low, my credit card is maxed out, so this should get interesting. I have no doubt that we'll make the trip happen without any financial hitches, however what happens when we get back to civilization with no money or jobs to speak of is another question.
Regardless this trip is entirely worth it, only 21 days until we leave for Alaska!
