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.)
