    Thank you for the information. I plan on making a list, checking it twice, and filling in the gaps in KTM by hiring and buying supplies. When are you going?

    Ebay has been very handy to get the coat that I need. If they are $1/day to hire, I figured a $30 coat to keep would be better.

    Now, with REI the trek is guaranteed and should be a great success.

    It about experience with the region. I could take you to Detroit and you would long for a batallion of soldiers to be tour guides. It has more to do with familiarity than anything else.

    This is great information. It was about what I expected as far as the weather. I probably won't need a down-filled coat. The gortex coat, fleece, and a long sleeve t-shirt should suffice even on...
