Packing, repacking, assembling, disassembling… lots of this going on right now… There’s even a possibility of me now shipping the bike instead of bringing it on the plane…. more on that when I figure it out, but for now, here’s my updated packing list, I’ll be “weighing in” once I’ve found someone to lend me a scale. I’ve also noted the location of items, as my saddlebags are all labeled with pictograms to distinguish what’s where.

oh my god tony your ahead of the game!!! and pictograms? nice 🙂
hey annalisa… thanks! yeah, there’s no safety net this time around, no uncle cliff budget or anything, so i’m pretty consumed with preparation.
and i had the pictograms last summer in maine as well, u didn’t notice?
I question the necessity of the deodorant, particularly in your case Tony.
Lee, how right you are. But I don’t have your shoulder to wipe the funk off this time.
