Studying maps and weather. Packing the last important items. You'd think we'd have done this enough that it would all fit.
But this time we're taking the F650's. More gravel road worthy for adventuring, but that means a new packing system.
And chains instead of shaft drives which means Paul found space for different tools and spare parts. Sure is nice to have my mechanic with me. He's has been mounting tires and doing services on the bikes. Preventative maintenance that should provide trouble free sMiles.
We plan to be in Hyder, Alaska by next Friday so we have time to smell the roses along the way. Tenting when the weather allows.
Internet where we find it. Motel with internet when we get desperate. Paul will carry his ThinkPad. I have a new Asus eee - a tiny thing with lots of internet power but not much memory. So we'll store pictures on the web and share them now and then.
Some of our friends are doing a 49 state ride in ten days. We'll help them celebrate next weekend.
Wish you all could join us. What fun we'd have!
