The ride begins in five days.
This should give you an idea of what we will be carrying.
Naomi Aitken and I will start our Seattle-Portland ride via Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens on Tuesday, the 27th, although my friends Kerry and Aaron tell me my official starting point was Friday Harbor (80 miles north on San Juan Island) since I rode and ferry hopped down from there on Tuesday. It was my longest loaded ride so far and ended with the luxury of a shower and a bed. This will not usually be the case on the road so I am enjoying it while I can.
Summer in Seattle is grand. It has been treating me well and will be missed.
