    T -1 for my first "real" bikepacking outing

    So I've done quite a few overnights / weekends leading up to my long awaited vacation. Seriously, a very, very, very long awaited vacation.. to be precise, 17 years since my last vacation.

    Anyways, I've posted before, but the theme for it is an Amish Tour; should be interesting, although, since I've been "training".. the mileage is waaay too short. The trip is only 68 miles, in 4 days. At the time I planned it, it really did seem like a long distance; now though, hell, I could do that in a single day

    Ah well.. I'll be off the grid until Monday, so cya guys then!

    5 days out, and now I'm back in the modern world.. It is an odd experience coming back a week later; out there, I felt more.. "alive"? Or "living"? Like I said, it is an odd sensation.

    There were ups, there were downs, there was even a few instances of "omg, I almost died" moments.. But it was FUN! I'll have a TR posted in the coming days, albeit, not as in depth as what I'll post on my journal/blog.

    I did have enough sense to take 3 peices of technology with me.. a cell phone (to call home once I was at final destination + emergency use), a voice recorder (to give my daily "thoughts" - good for post organizing journal logs).. and my camera of course.
