Smart wool socks many of them to switch everyday or if they get wet.
Merino wool base coat layer and base coat. (I used these to sleep at night in a tent)

Gortex pants are expensive, but all kinds of frosts know that wetting makes things a lot worse and rains during my hike.
These lambs never look cute. But useful
Gortex Jacket
Merino wool gloves gloves I can wear these at camp when the weather is not cool and put it in my gloves when it becomes too cold.
Gloves (gloves, gloves fit to these as well)
Three buffs are the majority of body heat escaping through the head. I will have Raynaud’s trichotomy hat and real rosary.

How does my Raynaud affect my journey?
I know that my four days on the Inca Trail will include some extreme temperatures and a little stress, so I try my best to be as ready as possible. The first day is easy, the sun shines, the altitude is not bad, the steep slope is not too high, and it is a special bonus that we do not have rain. I was able to pick up a T-shirt during the day and was satisfied with my night, even if it was a pleasure to have my own sleeping bag.

Day 2 is a very high day on the Inca route; Today is the longest day. I took a special socks in case my feet were wet, the floor was marino, Gortex pants and my favorite mittens jacket all went and went up the mountain. I found that as long as I kept pace, I felt better until at least lunch. After sitting for one hour for lunch, I felt cold in my hands and I added my furry fur gloves to my glove, which was an extra layer under my wool and scarf.

Some members of our group apparently contracted into the virus, which caused us to slow down today. My feet were numb and uncomfortable, causing me to leave the group and climb up, hoping to generate more heat, which would increase my internal temperature. As I climbed up the mountain, the temperature continued to drop. It was windy and rainy and I stopped to add another leg on my Gortex pants, which was a huge help because of the blockade. When it reached Dead Women’s at 4,200m, I decided to wait for the rest of the group. are This may not be the best idea for my condition. But I knew they were struggling and I wanted to go there to cheer on them while some started their first summit. I sat myself between two stones and sat for about an hour. Fortunately, the last group came to the right before I was ready to go. My hands and feethad change color. I feel tired and begin to be more stressed about my current condition, inevitably making things worse. Rather than staying with everyone on a trip down, I ran desperately to the warm water that sat at my tent. The last 400 meters of contemporaries was definitely a little hard for me since I felt the lack of feeling in my feet made me wobble. Like a penguin When I reached the tent, I kicked my wet clothes off my baseball boots and climbed into my sleeping bag with a heat sink to warm up. I feel awkward during the rest of the night and I can not thank my partner enough to have enough body heat to pass the night.

The next morning was cold as well. I slipped my Gortex boots and went up to the mountain. My feet are numb from going. I feel very painful and stressful.
