    Uh ohhhh.....





    Can you tell I wore my walking gear to work this morning complete with bright green Thames Hospice t-shirt?  Gave me an excuse to break the new boots in further.

    You enjoy your rest!

    I'm listening to Everest 1953: the story of the first ascend (way to give away the ending of the book in the title though, have they never heard of spoiler alert) by Mick Coneferey and it makes me think of you, all the bad luck they had, waw.

    That'll be my sis.

    Also, a previous employer of whom I haven't seen or spoken to since leaving 16 years ago must have seen something in the paper yesterday as they too have thrown another £50 my way.

    Wow, that's an amazing total. Also, @legoboy, you didn't tell me you ordered more than one shirt. Did you get more than one?

    Also, @legoboy, could you please reply to the PM's I sent you yesterday? I need to know if it'd be okay to post the art I did for your T-shirt on my Deviantart page and I was hoping to do it this morning, but I need to see if it's okay with you first.

    Might cover my knees as well.  So really, a poncho with pockets for me.  ;)

    I have something similar like Pitfall's from Haglöfs. I can walk a whole day in the rain without getting wet, and as it only weights 200g or so it's no bother to carry when it's not raining.
    Keeping the rain out is the only thing it does, but that's what softshells/windjackets/etc are for. As it'll be 19C tomorrow, something like this would be perfect.

    If you either have one or still have time to get one: a waterproof hat is great to keep your face save from the rain.

    A bit late with the tips, but maybe they still help!

    I have a waterproof jacket but don't want the restriction of waterproof trousers.  Wearing a jacket without the trousers usually means my bottoms get soaked from the run-off.  A poncho is best suited for this job I think.

    I was given a goretex cap a few years ago.  I do use it and it definitely helps keep the rain off my face but I tend to overheat.  Will take it and see how I get on.  :)

    James, meet The North Face Mountain Light jacket. I love this jacket. It has been everywhere. The newer ones are even better, but this is my baby. Very lightweight, waterproof (of course) and breathable. It also has vents to help cool you down. If you were here, I would lend it to you.
    But it can only be worn with shorts.

    Identical.  I want a waterproof jacket with frickin' lasers on its head!

    Actually, my jacket completely covers my butt, so any water run off would hit the back of my thighs and that is why you wear waterproof pants/long shorts. You guys are worrying about 19c when I routinely take walks in 19f weather. I shovel snow in my shorts too. You just need the right gear when going on long excursions. I couldn't wear just a poncho because I would overheat and I don't like how it flops around while you walk.

    Had a few last minute things to do including explaining to my dad how his phone now tracks mine.  I'm sure it went in one ear and out the other but hoping not as he has a second bag with spare changes of stuff for me in the inevitable event I get wet.  He also has the treats.

    Anyway, found this if you're interested.  This is the route and will give you an idea how far along I've got, or rather how much further I have to go.

    See you on the other side.
