Three Month Update

We bought some alpaca wool sweaters in Peru, and Jason added a cheap fleece jacket in Torres Del Paine.

We also quickly realized we needed our own pot, mugs and some silverware, since some hostels and campgrounds have stoves but limited pots.  We also bought a little gas stove and some bowls.  The bowls are larger serving bowls and double for laundry duty at times.

Six month update

We sent our sleeping bags, tent and sleeping pads home with Alexa’s mom, and she brought us a mosquito net for our next leg of the trip in Asia.  Once in Bali, we bought some cheap shorts and some sundresses for the tropical climate.

Looks like a lot of stuff. Hopefully Alexa can keep track of it all, especially for Jason.

Enjoy and take care of each other.

Okay so drop me a line when you need something sent to you and I’m on it.

Have fun and post some pictures for those of us who are living vicariously through you.

This looks great! How much did the not-so-faded-yet backpacks actually weigh?

The airport said mine was 15.5 kg and Alexa´s was around 13 kg. I´m not sure what that means, but they´re not too heavy.

Smartwool socks are the best! The only socks I’ll wear for running and just bopping around.

I love my smart wool socks. I can wear them for days before they get stinky. Yes I wear my socks for days now, it is one of the realities of traveling. Shhhh… don´t tell my mom.

Don’t worry – I can beat that. I go on several long RUNS before I wash them! I know gross, but I do the smell test and you’re right – they don’t smell!

When or when will they make Smart Wool underwear! HA HA HA

Bandannas are the most KEY items you can have… I’ve never used one item for so many different things before our trip. Amazing!

I want to know how much the packs weigh on the way back… : )
