I went outside today and set up my new tent! I've only told one other person the reason why I decided to go w the "Rainbow" vs the Contrail or Moment. I chose the Rainbow because of it's name. It was God's promise to never flood us again. To have faith... Even though the other models might be a little lighter I decided "hey if I'm gonna be out there for 5 1/2 months I certainly don't want to get flooded!" I thought it was a pretty darn good choice, and I couldn't be happier w it. Here is my shelter for pretty much the next half a year... Thank you Doug and Peggy Hamouz and Elizabeth and Bob Green!
I'll post pictures of my lovely backpack soon. I can't show you guys everything all at once... what would there be to look forward to? ; )
I cannot wait to get my maps in the mail. A bunch of us who are hiking the trail this year got together and bought in bulk. Halfmile's Maps should be here on either Monday or Tuesday. It's so thrilling isn't it? I can't wait to go over them! I feel like such a nerd... oh wait.. I AM! haha
Don't forget the music recommendations guys! Por favor!
PS- UPS is neck in neck w Santa right now... just sayin : P
