In just one week we will be on our way to Peru! I have been doing our Peru travel planning by getting tips from friends, reading several books and searching many sites to feel as prepared as I can be. Now you know what I have been doing with all my spare time- training, reading and shopping! Our new gear is spread out across our room and there are only a few additional items left to pick up. We certainly could not leave without a few extra pairs of hiking socks and headlamp batteries! A packing list for a one week trip to Peru including the 4 day Inca Trail will be coming soon!
