I’ve spent the last couple of days getting packing and going over the details. I’m really glad I took the time to write down my packing list a while ago since I don’t want to forget anything. I’ve also been working on figuring out good places to get gas, the last thing I want to worry about is running out of fuel. It would be inconvenient…
I’ve also been working on a good road trip playlist. I find that good music makes for a good trip so I’ve been fine tuning the one I used for Portland last year.
So with all the preparation of the last few weeks, I did nearly forget one important thing. Some sort of hydration pack, which I really wanted last year when I rode up to Portland. Kriega makes an insert for the R25 and I’ve ordered one and I just hope it arrives in time. I paid for priority mail, I couldn’t justify anything more. If it doesn’t come in time I’ll just have to be better at remembering to drink plenty of water when I stop.
I’ve also been debating trying to camp, and I would really like to, however I think that I’ve just not got enough energy to pull that off. We’ll see what I decide, I could change my mind at the last minute.
