WOW...a year in the planning has come down to today. Still got some loading to do and an errand or 2, but we plan on taking off within 4 hours or so. The dog thinks he is going with us, but he gets to stay home with Andy. He promised to take him to the dog park a lot, so he should be OK. Today is really just a trial run as we are just going down the road to visit some relatives. That will give us time to get propane, check the brakes, make sure the bikes are secure, etc. We will start packing on the miles tomorrow.
