Packing? Definitely lackin' in the crackin'....
I am still debating whether to bring the gear for Mt. Mitchell, NC on Friday.
I am still debating whether to bring golf clubs.
I don't have a new dress. I think I'll just bring a couple from last year when I had all the weddings. Oh well. I'd rather spend the money on gear instead anyway and I can't bear going to a mall for one more minute. Cause I spent like two hours shopping and that's enough.
I am excited that Chad and I are planning our next big overnight climb to the Crestones when we get back. Ever since I visited Humboldt last year I've been stoked to get Chad up on the Crestones traverse. It's a class 4 very exposed route that links Crestone Peak and Crestone Needle, both 14ers on the list. I do believe carrying the 8mm rope with a light rack will be justified. We did our practice the other day on Freeway. That's enought practice...I'm ready. This climb will be more serious, so I'll bring my real rock shoes. Chad says they help a lot, and I believe him since when he put his on the other day, he could just about run up and down the rock, while I fumbled to keep my relatively clunky approach shoes clinging on to the small toe holds. Might try to get a group together for the trip.
I know...need to tag 6 years of blog so it's easier to look this stuff up...maybe I can work on that over the vacation. That's what I get for being lazy up front. After all this time I can admit I still am and forevermore will be - a blog tard.
