today the last bit of my gear came in the mail – woohoo!!! i am sooo excited : ) here’s a pic of me in my cube, where the box ‘o’ gear was delivered. i had to try some of it on… gave some folks a good laugh : )

in my right had is the ice axe, i really wanted to take off the cardboard covering, but somehow i didn’t think that was a good idea at work. in my left hand are my trekking poles. good times.
