Valerio Massimo Everest Expedition 2009

The gear arrives

March 20th, 2009 by Alix

Two huge cardboard boxes were delivered today, filled with all the new kit Valerio had ordered. It was like Christmas – although this time Santa brought sturdy boots and hot packs insead of sugar plum fairies and reindeer. 

The kit ranges from the terrifying – adjustable balaclavas and an ice axe (the bank robbery special) – to the more benign, marshmallow-soft body suits and oversized baby booties for inside the tent.
