The internet is full of … stuff. Sometimes the stuff can be called information. Most of the time the stuff can be called, shit.

Take this with a grain of salt.

Background; Last year I went to Cambodia, and had never been to South East Asia. So of course, being the son of a neurotic Italian, I got every shot known to man. Hep A, B and C, Tet, Malaria, Encephalitis, Whooping Cough, TB, HPV vaccination, whatever, one of each. My doctor (best doctor in the world Sherri Sandel) told me basically that I was pretty much invincible, unless I had unprotected sex in western Africa. Not a concern this time around.

Anyway, I digress.

The next thing to do was to gear up. I learned a new term, “tactical clothing”, which just sounds badass. Now, on the “internets” you can read all sorts of advice; shorts vs pants, marine boots vs sandals, and ONLY wear long shirts as short sleeves are its disrespectful to elders. All sorts of “advice”.

Lets just say that I took lots of stuff, and ended up using a little of it. This time I’m going twice as long and taking half as much. In the next post, I’ll break it down for you.
