Friday, after work, Graham and I hit up our local REI to prep for our Alaska trip; we take off on Thursday for six days off fishing before a wedding in Anchorage. I’m getting a bit nervous for the trip since these are some things we had to pack…
The scariest thing on the list is a face net to keep away the mosquitoes. We also picked up some serious deet – the type of stuff that kills small children with one sniff. I’m attempting to look like I’m casting in this picture but it looks more like I’m clubbing a bear…take your pick.
We also need serious eye masks because it stays light all through the night. I actually love how it stays light and thought it was very cool the last time I was in Alaska. What worries me, is that my husband mentioned how we can continue fishing for as LONG as we want.
Apparently, I did not need a pair of red Sperry topsiders and for that I’m still not quite sure why I didn’t need them. Graham’s reasoning was that I already have them in brown and navy….ummmm…these are red and perfect for the 4th of July! The bears would love them.
For the first time in the history of knowing each other, Graham and I had different feelings about shopping. My feeling…
Man in an outdoor store is just like a kid in a candy store.
Loot has been purchased and we are ready for our adventure. For reals, I’m totally excited!!
