Gear On The Brain
So the last few days it seems like gear talk is in the air. It started on my birthday when I got a REI giftcard from my cousin (she knows me so well). So then the decision was easy. I was going to get another six pack of quickdraws so I have twelve. I originally bought the Omega Pacific Dirtbag Draws. They're budget friendly for someone just getting into Sport Climbing and the reviews and comments from other climbers have been good.
Then the REI dividend arrive with a 20% off member coupon. So that doubled my budget and the coupon makes that go even further. So initially I was thinking step it up to the Black Diamond 6-pack of draws. They're light and having some of each would get me acclimated to using different draws.
Then it all went to Hades when I read RockClimberGirl.com's posts on gear this week. Now I am thinking I need more layers, possibly different approach shoes, and more pink (yeah I am the rarity there).
Then I remembered, gosh I want to do more Geocaching, I really could use a GPS device! Or wait, I could get the less expensive draws and some accessories for my bike, or wait! Yoga accessories!
So as I babble about my gear choices and you're thinking Cupcake, why do I care? Why, because you like to vote! You like to give your opinion and you want to tell me what you would do.
