Not sure how much you want to spend, but look into ENO hammocks if neither of them have one already. Really fun to have and they arent serious gear so you'll avoid any brand preferences they might have

Yeti for sure

REI gift card .... or good hiking socks

No yeti, Walmart brands are cheaper and just as equal. Definitely some Merino wool socks, maybe some Salomon speedcross shoes (great for hiking), a jet boil, some good camping cooking took. A marmot precip rain jacket.

Eno hammocks are amazing. The sub 7 with rain fly and mosquito net is my package.

Check the Buffalo Wool Company for the warmest socks they will ever have!

Thanks all!
D1 - those socks are $40 a pair?

Yes $40 but worth every penny for warmth

I am very pregnant, due October 19th. I also have been applying at other firms because I am desperate to relocate and get out of my practice area.

It will be a zoom interview, so I can hide the pregnancy, but I'm not even sure if that's the best route. Help me figure out my life, please! 😁
