I don't know about you...but I'm getting AWFULLY EXCITED and have to jabber about it!

I went into REI (camp gear store) last night and inhaled deeply. God, I love the smell of new tents!

I went there to pick up a few more pairs of my favorite socks for riding. I'm in a tizzy about if it's going to be HOT or COLD or both...so I've gone to great lengths to make sure I have multiple layers of coolmax. I grabbed one of those teeny bottles of concentrated liquid camp soap...so I can wash out my gear. Saw some underwear that is "designed for the tourist who is going away for 10 days with only 2 pairs of undergarments". Wow, they market to EVERYbody these days. There's nothing they haven't thought of.

Is it time to pack yet?

Are you ready? Leaving stuff to the last minute? Need to jabber?

I'm ready, and I can't wait. I'm already NOT SLEEPING due to my excitement. I might as well leave now! I'm beginning to collect my items to be packed in the middle of my dining room floor, and doing the same thing you are...making last-minute trips to various suppliers to see what I need, or what I can't live without!


Perseverance is genius in disguise...

I'm already packed Kathy! I won't be getting back from Kauai until the 10th and can't leave for Cody until the 12th from Lake Wenatchee. Monday is going to be a long 777 miler. I hope the Troopers are sleepy on Monday morning

God, I noticed the other day I got stuck at the part of the aisle with all the little bottles of shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.

No matter how long it takes you to get to Cody...all that matters is that you arrive safely.Somehow we've all become attached at the hip and when one of us goes down everyone suffers in some way.

I remember at Gunnison in July 2002 we were worried about a few folks who were running late. Please let others know if you are coming in late. Then we'll keep the lights on and save some pizza. I'll hide Howards little bottle.

We'll be coming in through Jellystone. Hey BOOBOO!

We're not the least bit excited.

I'm hardly even keeping track of the fact that it is 14 days, 11 hours, and 12 minutes until we leave.

If you want to ride tomorrow, ride quietly today.
Quiet is cool, silent is sexy.

Man, when you print it out like that it hardly seems more than a minute away. I'd better pack!

I'm really happy and excited, as for about two month it was in the air if I will make it or not.
I leave earlier then most, next Saturday, 7/3, from work. The way I like to go, it will be the looong way. How about Maryland to Cody via Vancouver?
This weekend the bike gets service and tires. For packing I just pick a few of this and a few of that out of the closet.
For the trip I invested in a new (just recently came out) Jacket. It is the First Gear Kilimandjaro Air. Outer jacket is hip length, mostly mesh with armor. Inner jacket is wind/waterproof, lightly insulated. With that and Gerbing, I should be ok from 40 to 90+.
This is about as much "jabber" as you get from me. I'd like to shut up and start riding away...

Paul, when I told Barbara that you WERE coming to Cody she sure smiled. When I asked her why she was smiling so big she said, "because I will know someone at the your rally". I strongly suspect that before the Rally ends Barbara will have lots and lots of new friends. I'll have to warn you all that Barbara is a hugger. Paul, we fly to Salt Lake the same day that you start your ride. See you there. Some day maybe I hope to be riding fast enough to follow in your tracks.

For some reason I keep thinking that we'll see Kathy R. as she rides through Logan. If Barbara and I see a lady on an RT with Illinois plates, I do intend to ask her if she is Kathy.

See you all there. I'm excited to finally meet and thank all those who have helped me on this board so much, and I am FLYING -- not even riding there
