Things learned

While traveling the coastal plains of Texas we learned that you can readily find Hunt Brother's Pizza and tacos to eat.  Cell phone service is very iffy.  Therefore, the cell phone gps is worthless.  We need a satilite gps.  Doug who is a great believer in the old fashion map way has decided that a gps will be of value added to the maps.  My one creature comfort that I have allowed myself, rei wine glasses will remain on the equipment list.

Shake down bike ride

Doug and I have just returned from a 380 mile self contained bike ride to test out our equipment for our ride to Sault Saint Marie, Mich.  The equipment worked well.  We have some tweeking to do but we seem to have the situation under control.
