My Inauguration Outfit
I have on three layers of high tech Eastern Mountain Sports shirts: subzero-temperature wicking base, turtleneck and fleece vest, long underwear, pantyhose, fleece wrist covers, Joel's motorcycle gloves, 8 digital cards, two fully charged batteries, 8 AA batteries, a flask, a wide angle lens, cash, two cell phones, a metro map, three granola bars, and eventually there will be a 100-400 mm lens on the camera body. And that spiralled black and white thing around my arm is a tripod. I've stocked up on hand warming packs and toe-warming packs.
14 hours on my feet. Three days in a row. 5,000 porta-potties for 2.5 million people. Should I buy adult diapers? Twice now I've stood in front of the Depends display, seriously considering it. Seriously.
