Today I went for my final training ride with nearly all of my gear packed on the bike. I think that the only things missing were my towel, camp stove, and plastic sheets for under the tent and over the bike. I would have left for an overnight trip earlier, but not all of my gear was ready.
Another thing that I am testing is my ability to post to my WordPress blog from my iPhone. I may find Internet cafes while I am on the road, but it is far more likely that I will just use my phone.
It’s good that I did a dry run- I apparently need to install an app before I can upload pictures!
And there it is- my mostly loaded bike, posted from my phone.
