10-Day countdown to departure

Planning to leave on the 24th (or monday the 23rd, if everything is in line).

I have a bike picked out (Fuji Touring), some/most of my gear, plus I've moved my "stuff" to "storage."

Lots of good advice so far from experienced folks - Thank You!

Question of the Day:  What is the best way to store food so the bears don't eat it?


  1. Hang it in a bag on a rope strung between two trees that are at least 15 feet apart, with the ropes at least 5 feet up the trees. I'm pretty sure that's what I read...

  2. Don't forget to pack a ladder to get up into the tree. Also, be sure to sleep next to your bike for quick getaways if the bear gets mad that he can't get to your food.
