April 1st was Tashi's birthday too. Here she models her new necklace
Jen and I at the neighborhood pub
A shot of Brain with my new camera, taken shortly before I whooped'em at pool.
Jessica got me the shelter I have been wanting for the hike, and every time I set it up, I like it more. This one has mosquito netting, which my tarp doesn't have, which should add huge comfort in the sierras. My parents gave me a new camera for the hike! Its waterproof! It will be great not worry about rain, and it wont break if I drop it on a rock because its shock proof too! so sweet.
Wild Oasis from Six Moon Designs
It only weighs 13oz and its quite well designed.
I have been having some technical difficulties, trying to decide which electronics I will carry with me. I for sure want my camera. I would like a phone, and I would like to have email, so I can keep this blog rolling along. I also have to keep every think charged some how. When trying to keep the weight as low as possible, it becomes a big headache. Who knows the best combo...... I guess I will figure it out as I go.
There has been quite a bit of talk about me cutting my hair before I leave. I don't really want to, but I know it will way more practical if I don't have to worry about my flowing golden locks. It will have to be a quick decision when it happens, and I will post a photo. So Helen stay tuned!
