My High Energy Workout Playlist (April/May ’08)

Around Annapurna 2008: Day 8
It’s not possible to charge my tiny iPod Shuffle on the trek, and so I bought a AAA powered MP3 player to bring on my Annapurna Circuit trek. One lithium AAA is enough for weeks on the trail, without the need for recharging. These are slowly becoming extinct, which means they can be aggravatingly hard to find. They are out of fashion, so they are cheap. Stock up on them while they are still available.

Here are 15 songs from my trekking playlist:
I'm Walking On Sunshine, Katrina & the Waves
Rookie, Boy Sets Fire
Face Down, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
The Good Left Undone, Rise Against
One Last Breath, Creed
The Pretender, Foo Fighters
Major Tom (Coming Home), Peter Schilling
Banquet, Bloc Party
Bender, Dont Look Down
Master of puppets, Metallica
Fake it, Seether
The Red, Chevelle
Angels Or Devils, Dishwalla
Spin You Around, Puddle of Mudd
One Love, U2

April 23: Manang
We take a mandatory rest day here in Manang for acclimatization purposes. Laura, who took a preventative dose of the high altitude medication, Diamox, was the only one not to feel the effects. I had a headache and nausea the previous night, and began taking Diamox as well. We took the opportunity to move into the highly rated Hotel Yeti, which was full the previous day.
