I typed up a bunch of words to describe this trip, but I didn’t like it. Too many words. I think the pictures speak for themselves so I’m just going to share them. I will say a few things though.
One, this trip was tough. Really tough. I think I pushed my bike almost as much as I rode it. Steep hills, mud, stream crossings and yeah, a river crossing!
Two, my kit worked out great! It didn’t start out that way, and I had to re-distribute some gear. Once I did that though I was pretty happy with everything. There are a couple more things to add to my kit, but overall it worked out great!
