Well, here it is Sunday evening, Mother’s Day. Tomorrow was departure day. Was. Too much left undone before heading out.
It seems preparation has been an accumulation of yet more stuff. After all the climbs I’ve been on, it seems a shame to me to have to go out and purchase still more gear. Sleeping bags and tents for example, just how many do I need? Well through the years they have gotten lighter and now down sleeping bags are water resistant. A new tent because old nylon begins to smell pretty bad after awhile. Approximately 5 weeks sleeping in an off-gassing, wind beaten “shelter” is going to be taxing at best.
And to think, my dear wife Kathy has recently renewed our indoor bed set-up with a very comfortable memory foam mattress.
Just what am I thinking anyway?
