Junk in My Trunk

Today is all about going over my packing list and printing off my maps.   As Scott has kindly pointed out, I have everything but the kitchen sink strapped onto my bike.   I have added a bike trunk instead of huffing it out with a backpack on my back for 600 miles.  Because I have space now, I am going to lug my camera.  I am excited about this because I haven’t been shooting for a long time.  So now I will not only be challenging my body and mind, I will also get to nourish my soul as well.  However, with adding the heavy and bulky camera it doesn’t give me much room for clothes.  I have had to down size my clothing articles to one pair of riding clothes and one after ride outfit.  Yes, I do plan on showering and washing my previous day cycling clothes and wearing deodorant so I shouldn’t be too ripe. 🙂  It’s worth giving up space to take my camera.  Excited!  However, I will make the final decision about leaving tomorrow or wait until the 1st week in Oct.  The weather is NOT looking good at all.  Not sure I want to ride in the rain, yet not sure I want to wait either… what to do, what to do….

So here is my list of junk in my trunk:
