Getting the gear ready

 

Over the last few months we have been researching and purchasing the gear that we will need for our upcoming Himalayas trip.  We have bought bits here and bits there and today decided that we needed to make a final check and see where we stood.

Fortunately, we are good on most things but still need wool caps, sunglasses and a few other things. 

One of the items that we had purchased was a hydration system that allows you to drink as you walk rather than having to stop and pull out water bottles every few steps.  We decided to give it a try as well to see if we like it…..

The water pack goes in the backpack and the tube and mouthpiece attach to the strap.  It is SO much easier than water bottles!!!

The other thing that we decided to buy was a solar charger so we spent some time trying to figure out how to attach it.

This was our original thought but then figured out another way where it would hang vertically and be attached at both the top and bottom…..much better.

The last purchase is going to be a new camera but we cant figure out exactly what type to get.   We enjoy our little point-and-shoot but think that we might get better photos with a DSLR.   The problem with a DSLR is that it weighs more and we do have to carry everything with us!!!

….guess we will figure it out before we leave!!!
