Is it time to panic yet????

OK, so quite a lot is already sorted out and ready but oh my life there is still so much not ready.
As an example we have no sleeping bags which we now realise are very crucial as quite a few nights on our Tibet to Nepal trek are spent at 5000m in monestary's like the one at Everest Base Camp with no heating, rock hard beds and no electricity. 
We have not yet downloaded as many books as we can onto our Kindle's to entertain us on our train journeys.
We have tried the super noodles we have brought to eat on the trains and they are pretty rank, but they are edible .... just, so some more food is in order to take I think.
We have no itinary for China and India yet and the list goes on and on. 
But to be fair, in our defence we do have all the train tickets to get us from London to Beijing arranged, the hotel in Moscow,  hostel in Mongolia and Beijing are booked.  The trek from Tibet to Nepal is booked and deposit is paid for and the youth hostel in Kathmandu and Pokhara are booked.  Everything else will be booked as and when we decide where we are going.
6 days and counting
