Go Back

You’re kicking back on a Saturday night, chillin’ like the villain you are, playing Grand Theft Auto V on the Xbox when your phone starts lighting up like gangbusters.


“Sup, dawg?”




“The crew and I are thinkin’ about takin’ a mancation.”




“Yeah. Pack your bags, we’re trekking in the Himalayas!”


You sit there, dumfounded, thinking: aren’t dudes supposed to go to Ibiza or Las Vegas? Or, at the very least, aren’t they supposed to be playing golf somewhere? Not your friends. They’re extreme. So now you need to pack some serious gear. But before you even move from your dumfounded spot on the couch, the phone lights up again.




“Oh, yeah. We might encounter the indomitable snowman.” Click. *fuzz me sideways*


Packing for the Himalayas


When you’re packing for a trekking expedition, the idea is to only pack the essentials, but there are a lot of essentials when you’re hiking through a high-altitude, snowbound, alpine paradise. Light, warm clothing is a must, so pack t-shirts, jumpers, long sleeve tops, trousers, and long johns. Don’t forget the waterproof jacket with a zip-in fleece or a down jacket, as well as additional fleeces and another waterproof layer. Hats, gloves, boots, and sunglasses are also a necessity. Here are a few more easily forgotten essentials:


  • Trekking poles
  • Toiletries, sunscreen, and a medical kit
  • One wipe charlies! Err… “bathroom wipes for men”. For more:
  • Iodine/chloride tablets to treat local water, vitamin pills
  • A quick dry towel
  • Small waterproof rucksack (day bag) and a large waterproof rucksack


When You Spot a Yeti

According to pre-19th century myth and legend, the Yeti was part of the pre-Buddhist beliefs of several Himalayan people. The Lepcha are said to have worshipped a “glacial being” or ape-like cryptid or wild man. So when you spot one of these creatures walking across a snowy mountain ridge, here's what you do:

1. You start a snowball fight. Seriously, think of it as an ice-breaker (no pun intended).
2. Run like hell. This is why you’ve been lugging around those abominable trekking poles for two weeks.

3. Make an impromptu igloo and do some ice fishing.
4. See which one of you has more facial hair. You’ve been in the mountains a long time, homie.

5. Say something like, “Hey Yeti, where do the girls hang out around here?”

Man up boys, you’re trekking with the indomitable snowman! Just in case you’ve been wondering why we talk about crazy and sometimes downright insane things — well, it’s sorta’ like how in real life you’d be chillin’ and cruisin’ but every now & then get a curve ball thrown right at ya! Say ‘aye’ if you know what we’re talking about. Well thankfully, brother Breakbounce is always around to put life and its most important aspects in good perspective for dear old you. We know that you wouldn’t expect anything short of that.
