Kit buying

Tuesday, 20 May 2008

Well who would have thought it, I'd like shopping for kit!! It's fab finding great bargains on the internet. You've just go to know what you're looking for and where to find it. I am fast becoming a kit geek searching for deals and good kit. I have taken delivery of my first real 'serious' piece of kit - a 4 season down Rab sleeping bag. Very cool and a bargain too at £70 off the RRP.

No I'm not inside it in this picture but I did lay on top and i sunk into it. Hopefully it will be warm enough and provide me with some good nights sleep when on my trek.

Day of training was a circuit round the loch at my place of work with a walk up to the Wallace Monument thrown in for good measure. http://www.nationalwallacemonument.com/ Not bad for a lunch time training circuit. My ever present side-kick and chief motivator Sharon was with me too. Another one planned for Thursday lunchtime and a long walk on Friday has been promised by Susan (she's in training for the Moonwalk, Edinburgh). All good though.

So as far as I know, at this minute, Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE; Kenton Cool and co and a crew from Jagged Globe (plus a few more I'm sure) are making their way up to summit Everest. Good Luck guys! Stay safe. x
