Time is getting closer and am getting anxious.... added one last farkle before repacking. A waterproof case/pannier for gloves, balaclava, etc., an Ammo Box. Something if I stand over it, rain will not get in while I change from leather to rubber gloves. Plus I start the day early when still cold, so start with heavy gloves and switch to lighter ones later in the day.
Still a few details to take care of at work first.
Stay tuned, we are about to start a new adventure.
