All of our possessions for the next month

Some have asked what we are bringing, so here is a picture. From left to right, sleeping bags, tent, pads, tiny camping chairs, clothes (Lisa’s are in the orange stuff sack), maps, technology (including a borrowed solar collector), cook kit and stove, first aid kit, a couple books, bike tools, Clif bars, water bottles, shoes. In the back, our four Thule panniers and a handlebar bag which Lisa will be carrying.

It all fits! This is what a self supported trip looks like.

I’m still pondering long pants – 95% of the trip will be very hot, but the first few evenings may be cool. And will we dine out sometime where I would want to wear long pants? I’ll decide pretty soon. Opinions welcome. Also, what essential item have we forgotten?

  1. I’m worried there may be bug issues south of St Louis. Zip off shorts/pants may save you from ankle biters! Bon Voyage!
