  5. -list of items to be carried ready... -there are 50 line items in all...
    -logistics almost figured out... reach Rishikesh before 0500hours and then take a Uttranchal Tourism Bus to Badrinath so that we reach Badrinath by evening...
    - Sleeping Bags taken care of.. zippers on both the bags repaired...
    - Procured 5 film rolls ( ISO 400) and two spare batteries... which i do not think i am going to need for a long time.. but then why take a chance.. my camera manual says that with 100% flash on.. one set of batteries can last upto 22 rolls of film !!!
