Staging My Gear

Staging my gear. My goal is 50 to 60 lbs

Other riders are between 31 and 50 lbs...

I think it is amazing that riders can travel across the USA within the 31 to 40 lbs range. I often think that when "two or more" are biking together, they are able to share weight but when you are solo, everything comes with you.

Anyhow, I am down to less than 18 days from my departure date of May 2nd. I will use the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to organize all my stuff, while staying at my guest home in Vancouver, Washington (just outside of Portland). On the 5th, I expect to be speaking at one of my home churches and the 6th, early, we will drive two hours to my starting line in Astoria, Oregon. I will start riding on the 6th from Astoria, OR

Astoria, OR is my starting point on May 6th.

Today, I purchased a 2TB hard drive to be shipped to my Washington address as part of my gear. This is used for all my files, videos, and backups.

I will write again soon in the near future as I progress along. Soon, I will be picking up my bike box and getting that ready.

Meanwhile, I will be teaching in the YWAM School of Worship this April 15, 16th, and 17th. On the 18th, we have a big day of evangelism here in Manila. After that, later in April, I have three more days of teaching in the Discipleship Training Week and possibly two more "driving jobs" for two teams that are going to their particular outreach and/or training location.
