A reason to go to REI

I was driving around the other day, passing lots of shops and bad Virginia drivers, when I noticed an REI store close to my home. I remember thinking aloud, "I would like to be the kind of person who has a reason to go to REI"... days later, after spending a couple days traipsing around in the mud and cold of the Jersey river front, I realized my tennis shoes and jeans just weren't cutting it. I needed waterproof HIKING boots, and THERMAL underwear! I needed to go to REI!!!When I walked in the front door, there were beautiful bicycles hanging from the ceiling. I had arrived. I stuck to my list for the most part, except for a *few* items I ultimately deemed necessary. And as luck would have it, the cutest pair of hiking boots were on sale! (these were the cutest, I promise...)And check out my new FANNY PACK, which I nearly forgot is an absolute necessity when shooting... don't know how I've survived so long without one! This particular pack spoke to me, I could not leave REI without it.
AND check out my special gloves and socks. These were some pricey socks, but I have a feeling they will pay my feet back time and time again. (*pics of thermal underwear left out intentionally)

The end!

PS come visit me soon!

I think I'll postpone my visit for a season that does not require thermal underwear. :o)
