Planning for a big bike ride

In a week, I’ll be heading on a train to Idaho with my daughter Kait so we can bike to Washington, then Oregon, and then back to Minnesota. Preparing for such an undertaking is no small matter–and, it’s a ton of fun. This morning, I broke out all the gear I used on the last tour I did 2 years ago and combined it with all the new stuff I’ve been ordering on Amazon for the last couple of months. I got a new water filter, bear spray, cooking stove, set of allen wrenches, and camera. Everything else I already had, which is a nice thing about bike touring: once you have the gear, you have the gear.
