Grocery bills soar

Everyone has been eating constantly since arriving home and sleeping a lot. I go shopping every other day to keep the fridge filled with fresh fruit and vegetables something there was very little of on the mountain. Meat is also something they crave. Dan wanted a Wendy's double burger when he got off the plane. Since all the Wendy's were closed when we reached Barrie he had to settle for a friend's homemade pies delivered to the house as a treat for the returning mountaineers.
The family all lost weight. Since none of them had a lot of fat on them in the first place a lot of the weight was muscle. Adam lost almost 35 pounds (17.5 kg). His clothes are quite loose. It will take a long time for their bodies to fully recover.
