… especially when you’re trekking for the first time and have no gear yet.
I’ve spent a lot of money on gear for this trip, but at least I’m getting good quality stuff and we will have it for future trips.
and I’m still surprised by how little we will need for 18 days in the mountains. There’s a few things to pick up this weekend: self-inflating mat – optional and I’m not certain I’m getting one at this point-, gaiters (for tromping through mud/snow/rain), a pocketknife, and first aid kits. And then we are off on our adventure next week!
It’s pretty exciting.
