Well I realize many of you are well on your way to finalizing your plans for the rally in July. I am still planning. My rally adventure will begin from Paris, AR with nice little short ride up to Calgary, Alberta. Gonna stop at Glacier National Park with my family for a few days first. In Calgary I am meeting my Uncle who is riding from Anchorage, AK. We will then begin our journey across the country to end up in Eastern TN. This will be my first ride beyond 500 miles and I am looking for some advice. I would like to see the absolute packing list from some of you diehard road dogs. What are some of the things that you never leave home without? Hotel? Camping? Laundry? Showers? Internet? what do you do for these things?I would like to see a post with the knowledge of some of you being shared not horded to yourselves, haha. Oh yeah bare in mind I have a Wife that says I have to keep some kind of BUDGET within reason. I am sure I am not the only person that would like to learn some of the tricks of cross country riding.
