I Think I'm Prepared...


Soon I'll be leaving for Nome and it's anyone's guess what the temperatures will be, they've been all over the chart since I decided to take this trip and added the city to my weather app.


I really (really!) am not a fan of the cold and so once my ticket was booked I promptly started researching what gear I'd need. Smartwool came up time and time again as a great baselayer, so I shopped around to find the best deals and ordered up some of it! 


Good to -25 degrees, the Joan of Arctic Sorels were next on my shopping list, and found them on sale through Amazon. (I do love my Amazon...)


A stop at the local Big 5 Sporting Goods store landed great deals on gloves and a ski mask. Yes, I'm not going without one of those! And luckily my closet isn't wanting in the warm apparel department...so I just may be set.


I guess I'll soon find out.
