Was reading the Interns's comments this morning and decided to finally make a post.
I am an advid weather watcher and have a Personal Weather Station that uploads data 24x7.
This summer I was on the top on one of the most severe weather days of the summer. To many it was a bad day for the trip, to me it was awesome.
I very much want to go on the Winter ECO trip and have come up with the money, but another big expense is the gear that you are required to take. I have checked into rentals, but you can not rent everything that is required. I am still checking out my options, I love severe weather and what better place to be in the winter.
