Actually, its more of a helmet... Finding a place to fit that on the pack is actually hard...

Sunscreen is more important though... especially with a nose previously having received 2nd degree sunburn...
Yes, have fun on your glacier, 'thul! I feel like I am living in one at the moment and I still have to get to winter yet! Surrender

I'm sure you'll find a way to pack your hat/helmet and don't forget that factor 150 sunscreen! Wink
That is only a little different from the factor actually brought... 'thul brought factor 15.

The nose will receive fair tape treatment.

That will be beautiful. Have fun Smiling

the trip turned out somewhat differently... instead of going across it lengthwise, it became across it sideways, in the more traditional fashion. The gear was too heavy and the group in too poor training to accomplish the goal as originally planned.

some pictures may come later.

Did you enjoy it though? And has your nose survived intact? Wink
Sounds like your glacier trip was better than mine, taken 35 years ago, on an Alaskan glacier, on skis. It was in the winter, the wind was so strong it blew away my foam pad, and I got to find out what hypothermia feels like. I don't recommend it. My fellow travelers had the sense to pop me in a sleeping bag with one of them and feed me tea until I stopped crying and started talking coherently. I have not been back since.

What have I been doing lately? Not lurking on line P . I've been working, dragon-boating, river rafting, hiking, biking, dancing, camping, reading, volunteering at 1 AM in the morning, going on retreat, watching people run footraces naked (the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco) and other sundry things. And that's just the past 3 weeks. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
a prime example of how things could go wrong (yet not completely wrong) that...
^ I'm exhausted just reading about it...good stuff, Narya! P

I am watching the transit of Venus and, in the doing, am witnessing something James Cook witnessed just prior to the 'discovery' of my homeland...very cool are these astronomical events. Smiling
