In preparation, I decided I better sort through my kit box and check that I have everything I need:
emergency chocolate - check
rigging gloves (formally sailing gloves) - check
warm toasty gloves - check
knife - check
nips (wire cutters) - check
at least two warm hats - check
cheap sunglasses - check
torch - check
headtorch - erm... better get searching for that... especially as it took three before I found one I liked... finally found!
And I may have treated myself to a trip to Decathlon for some extra warm clothing to help me through the cold (and possibly wet) days ahead. And the best thing was how cheap it all was :)
|My haul - a very soft fleecy buff, extra thermal top, fleecy layer and ski socks (long and toasty warm).
