Practicing wearing our gear in preparation for Siberian weather with a walk to our local beach, Joss Bay. It’s about 2 degrees and a bit windy here so it will give us a very small taster of what it is going to be like and whether we have enough layers or bought the right things.
Totally underestimated how long it takes to get three kids ready, especially trying to get into tight-fitting base layer leggings. All fairly toasty warm apart from our faces so might have to buy a H.A.D. or BUFF mask/snood versitile headwear.
It is going to take us forever to get anywhere, as we have to go at Seamus’ pace which means stopping for every branch, snail or anything that distracts him along the way. Who knows, after a few months travelling we might have got no further than a few miles from our house.
