Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, at the end of July I will be traveling to Peru for two weeks. On my itinerary is going to be some hiking, as I've always dreamed of exploring some trails, and also marching to Machu Pichu.
I haven't settled on any one trail yet, and I hear the environment there can vary.
So kind lads, help me out here. I need to find a good backpack, and good hiking shoes, for a small sized female. I'll be going to REI tomorrow and am trying to NOT be completely unprepared!
Also, any other recommendations for gear I might need. My main goals are keeping it light, I don't mind roughing it, my major issue will only be I HATE being cold, and also don't want to lug a bag full of concrete around for days...
