Wanna see some pics of my gear? Probably not, but here they are anyway! I've got some more stuff that I don't have pictures of yet. And my pack has been ordered, I'm so excited! I'll make a real gear list sometime.
Shoes: Merrell Moab Vents, size 36. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have gotten a size 37, but I didn't want my shoe falling off so I can buy a larger size part way through if I need to.
Socks: Smartwool medium weight hiking socks, women's size small. And FoxRiver Sock liners, size small. I like the Smartwool socks okay. 3 out of the 6 sock liners have had holes in them though, so I'm going to return another pair and see if they have a different brand of liners. I'd heard good things, but holes in the socks that I've never worn is not cool! I wanna make my own holes in them. I need some more socks, I think I'll order the smartwools online (cheaper) and maybe the liners too once I figure that out! I'll be taking 3 pairs of smartwools and 2 liners, but will surely need to replace them. I'm figuring at least 2 replacements for each sock.
And a stove: Jet Boil. They only had black, I wanted red. Oh well. This worked great when I tried it. Lights super easy, even in the freezing cold! The black stove under the cup comes off and fits inside with the fuel cannister. The black plastic cup to the right fits over the silver part on the bottom of the cup.
