I don’t often have this much time to think about an overnighter. Normally it’s “Ah, quick!”, I throw a Lasercomp into a Villain and I’m out the door. I’m still taking a Villain, but it’s got the 2009 updates so this is it’s first trip out (I’ll detail the changes to that and the Jirishanca next week).
Most of the kit that’s coming is unknown and unfamiliar, but trustworthy due the the name sewn onto it. What am I wearing on my feet? No idea yet. The tent is a Lightwave, I’m sleeping in two PHD down bags in combination, so I may be on the cozy side. Clothing choice will be last minute I think, the Montane Halo will be my shell though.
It’s all about kit this wee trip. Well, it was at the start. Now there’s a bunch of us going and it’s become something else altogether. I checked the weather and there’s a front of Highly Photogenic moving in from the Atlantic during tomorrow, but it’s looking like that’ll swing around to a strong North Westerly Oh Bastard in the early hours of Sunday.
I’m looking forward to this.
