REI

It snowed again today, and I'm pretty sure this is the first time since childhood that I've been excited for snow. Fresh snow today means a happy snowshoer tomorrow! Of course, this also means that I went to REI again today to get a few more pieces of gear. At this point, I'm on a first name basis with Theresa, Warren and Michael, and even have Michael consulting with me on how to train his new Doberman puppy. Yep, I've spent a lot of time as of late getting geared up and asking lots of questions! 

Tonight's haul included another Smart Wool top, toe warmers and most importantly, 4 season trekking poles! I'm excited to report that my new poles are Purple Punch and I can't wait to try them out along with my new shoes tomorrow. I'll definitely be happy once I am out of the "gearing up" phase, and can move onto the "getting out without thought and enjoying the sport" phase!  

What are you doing to stay active this winter?
