after a full day of climbing at VE, shelly and i went to REI and picked up my pack!!! woohoo!!! my first piece of gear (thanks to mom for the REI gift card). i’m so excited, makes the fact that my forearms are totally shot from climbing, not really matter – haha!

the REI sales guy measured me to confirm i ordered the right size pack

and it fits!

totally cheesin’ – thanks for taking the pics shell! this is probably the last time i’ll be smiling this big with this pack on for a LONG time!
