12th Day: Smith Goggles

On the 12th and last day of getting ready, I realized that I’m never going to be done getting ready for this trip. I think it might actually be easier to some extent to get ready for a year long trip that involves packing up and leaving home, than a trip that involves using home as a technology and sleep headquarters. Ah, adventures.

Anyways, no matter what challenges life or this adventure throws in my face, my eyes will be protected thanks to my Smith Optics Goggles. And I just might be able to see those various challenges being thrown at me thanks to the fact my Smith goggles have some pretty awesome anti-fog and adjustable vent technology built right in.

I know I’ve been almost entirely consistent with posting pictures, but I just couldn’t find a good way to photograph the goggles (and the husky wouldn’t sit still long enough to let me take a picture of him wearing them), so check out Smith Optics webpage on the goggles I have.

I’ve noticed that as I go through my box of gear that I actually have a lot of goggles, so there’s obviously something about my Smiths that’s keeping me around. I’m guessing by my lack of knowing what I like about them should say it all. They are incredibly comfortable, so much I have forgotten they’re even on. They don’t fog up no matter the conditions I’m subjecting them to. And they’re pretty stylish, so I don’t feel like a bug with some huge eyes going on.

So where does one get some Smith Optics of their own? Lots of places! Check out EMS, REI, local snowboard shops, etc. It’s a common brand, but a good one!

And with that I end the 12 days of getting ready. Tomorrow morning I head off to Burke Mountain in East Burke, VT to officially mark the start of my 60 day adventure. Ready? =D
