Gearing Up

by Fire Girl Jess on April 22, 2012

Sunset in the Texas brush country.

The past few weeks have been a blur of preparation for leaving Texas in two weeks and the United States in (under) four.

Moving to Russia brings all up kinds of logistical challenges.

Immunizations were today, a fact which my arms and head are currently protesting, and I’m finally ordering some pieces of gear that I’ve just always wanted.

Pants (simply amazing!) and an uber-warm jacket from Arc’teryx.

A new techie headlamp from Petzl.

The Suunto Core I’ve been eyeing for over a year.

In all reality, it’s not that much stuff, just some key pieces that should make a big difference in the coming months.

Gear and emergency evac insurance is slowly coming together.  Apparently my camera insurance company is very much not happy with this latest escapade.

I have somewhere in the neighborhood of ten days left in Austin, then will drive up to Seattle to drop the Suby and computer gear off.  It all seems very, very surreal and yet startling real at the same time.
