One step closer

Very excited! I’m making some real progress. Here’s the list so far:

House sold – check
Leaving date agreed with work – check
Backpack purchased – check
Ticket purchased – check
Backpack purchased – check (sometimes you need to recognise a mistake, rectify it and move on. My second choice is much better!)

The question now is whether I can get away without packing any winter wear. High altitude and camping in South America in October screams thermals and gloves but I’m in denial.

I’m currently wondering whether a roll of tin foil (lightweight and disposable)from which I can fashion a jacket (together with my duct tape?) will act as a replacement? The realist in me suspects not 🙁

Back to the North Face shop, then. Ooh, shopping – that’s good!
