T-1: We leave tomorrow morning
Today, the truck became an expedition vehicle. Under the shell, below the platform, are packed a great assortment of healthy food, my wet suit and snorkel gear, several gallons of water, a well equipped tool box, a first aid kit, flashlights, a mini cook stove, bike gear and clothes for a wide range of activities. On top of the platform are my sleeping bag, the mountain bike that was my brother's, my panniers and a folded futon. There is still room for Shahe's food, gear and his folding kayak. He told me today that we don't need to over-plan, just head south tomorrow and see how it goes. I am lucky to have a friend like that.
