I designed this for one of my colleagues. He’s a physics specialist and will hopefully appreciate the quotation.
Today’s Gratitude Item: Getting some hiking boots and a backpack. I’ll need these for camp later in the year and am starting to get organised now. Hiking boots were $45.00 from the Warehouse, which is a lot better than the huge prices asked by Timberlands / Kathmandu. Given that I only do a “hard out” hike on camp, and last year I did it in my regular sneakers and survived, there is no way that I can justify forking out over $250.00 of my hard earned cash for hiking boots. The cool thing about living in New Zealand is that we have really beautiful scenery and no snakes – which means wearing super tough shoes to avoid snake bite is not necessary.
