At this time, I am trying to get everything ready for the trip. I have read so much over the last few years about what is needed and how to get ready, but there is nothing like actually doing it. The big concerns are:
I have most of my gear, but have yet to lay it all out or do a test run. I have a rough idea of where I want to go, but have not locked down a route. I ordered some maps from Bike Across America, which should be in this week. About the blog: this is my first post and I have a lot to learn. When it comes to finances, I will be putting together a budget this week (after I purchase everything I think I need). That will give me an idea of how long and far I can travel. I hope to have all of these concerns answered this week.
Oh, and I also need to be riding!
Make sure to also keep track of your weight and body changes before the training, post training pre trip, post trip.
