gear

Arrived safely in Zagreb…and more answers.

Full report forthcoming but suffice to say I’m in Croatia!

Gear check – So far everything seems to be working out just fine. Still trying to get the backpack adjusted properly, but I rarely have it on for any length of time, so that’s okay. The Petzl light is fantastic and I wish I’d brought more shirts and one less pair of pants.

I did buy a small shoulder bag for carrying a book, my journal and maps and such. When I have a locker at the hostel, I can lock up my computer and just take the little bag, but I don’t leave the little backpack if it’s not secure.

I like my packing cubes for keeping everything organized and I wish my large backpack had two compartments instead of just one. But I do have a mesh bag for dirty clothes.

And no, I didn’t get any pictures of the surfers. I wish I did, it was cool.

Sleeping comfortably…

So last week, somehow, I lost my pajamas.

Yesterday, I went to Tesco’s and replaced them.

Yay!

Cell Phone Blues…

Well… Sprint sucks. In order to forward my phone it would cost me .20¢ a minute and I just ain’t gonna pay. Therefore, if you want to get hold of me for the next three months, please call 702 HALF ASS (702-425-3277).

If I don’t respond, I promise I’ll call you back as soon as I can (but remember, there is a time difference.

By the way, I leave for the airport in 6 hours.

Packing…

Last night I took everything I’ve purchased, assembled and gathered into the backpack and wore the blasted thing around for an hour or so. Not too bad! I think I’ve got everything I need and the moment of truth is fast approaching

Hopefully the next post will have a picture test.
