You Can’t Pack Everything!

T-minus 6 weeks and our packing list is getting pretty solid.  We still can’t decide on bringing the bikes though – so fun to have, but such a hassle to have them hanging off the front hitch for months.  It’s a slippery slope too, if we bring the bikes, do we bring all the bike gear?  Even the bucket panniers?

(Yes, this post was mostly just a chance to post a picture of the DIY bucket panniers – anybody interested in a how-to guide?  It was also a chance to link to our base vehicle guide and layout planning guide for tips on figuring out how to make it all fit.)
