The vacation plans continue to gel, and become even more awesome. Today I bought one of the last tickets to White Mischief. This is a steampunk party happening in London on October 27. Tomorrow is for details, like buying plane tickets to get to London. On October 28 I'll fly down to Falkland for two weeks, and tag Ascension Island for three days on the way back. There may then be a prolonged putter around the UK at the end of it all.
I shall need to go shopping for a bunch of gear, and spend some time preparing the tools that I do have. I need an ebook reader, to lighten my load. Possibly a new computer too. My backpack and sleeping bag were bought in 1995, and I should see if they're still up to the job. I need to load maps into my GPS, since I expect the Falklands weren't in its default set. Maybe new raingear, since my 1996 Goretex jacket has blown its primary zipper.
