I have ordered a pair of Komperdell Vario 4 Ultralite Carbon Fibre Trekking Poles. This is the first non photography related item I’ve bought for the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017.

There goes more money because they don’t use Skype or cooperate with the British Passport Office.
There’s about half a year until I travel to America and I’m already excited (is this normal? haha.)
