Started to trial some of the stuff that we might take. The water filter was okay though the water in the Cheviots remained brown. In the end we just added coffee and pretended everything was fine. I do hope that the sheep flukes were dealt with.
Angela’s sleeping bag seemed to cope with temperatures that were approaching 0 c. Mine needed extras to get through the night, I am sure it will cope with Nepal.
Next purchase will be some shoes. I am thinking of moving away from leather – it would be good for cultural sensitivity too.
