Setting out to hike the Inca Trail for 4 days. 4 days with no showers, no proper facilities and thankfully no mirrors!! Wilbur, our head guide has trekked the Inca Trail for 25 years, and he claimed that this was the first all female group he had guided and coincidentally, this was the first group to run out of toilet paper – hmmmmmm. Our porters and guides took extra care of us and always seemed to anticipate our needs. We had minimal personal belongings but it still required 16 men to carry all our gear, food, water, and propane. Under such careful supervision we had no injuries or mishaps, not even a blister! As an example after a torrential rain/hail storm at the top of Warmiwanusca, “Dead Woman’s Pass” (we appreciated the irony) we were invited to hang all our wet clothes in the kitchen tent to dry – this just proves you can’t keep some of us out of the kitchen even on a camping trip!
