Happy Bday to Variance - 43. Means I’ll be hitting that age in a few more months.

righto, lightweight for backpacking is even far more important than bike packing. My brother hiked GA to PA along the Appalachian trail for about 5 months. He and a buddy did hiked together for the first month, then his friend bailed. My bro managed to swap out his 4 man tent for a small 1 person tent to save on weight.

Trying to keep a backpack to 40 pounds, including water, involved things with pricy price tags. Lighter is never cheaper.

My idea of roughing it is a nice hotel room :)
@ AARR « Wed 7:58:23 am »
I can sleep on the ground
@ AARR « Wed 7:57:51 am »
For example, Mrs AARR idea of roughing it is a fully stocked RV.
@ AARR « Wed 7:56:52 am »
You are correct Z. It depends on how much you want to “rough it”
@ ~Z~ « Wed 7:44:37 am »
of course you don’t need to buy that expensive of equipment, but good equipment can get costly. Much like our photography gear :)
@ ~Z~ « Wed 7:44:11 am »
was watching Van Duzer on youtube yesterday talking about how easy it is to get into bikepacking. He shows his gear list for a short overnight, trying to show how anyone can do it. Proceeds to show a $400 tent, $400 sleeping bag, and $200 sleeping pad...ouch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W08BQWhAyik&t=3m39s
@ ~Z~ « Wed 7:41:51 am »
thx. carried a tube and bought a decent floor pump to take with yesterday.
@ AARR « Wed 6:41:16 am »
That’s a nice set up

i had about 10 lbs of stuff with me today to see how easy it is to bike with gear
@ ~Z~ « Tue 10:52:19 pm »
yes, part of the bike packing investment. Rear rack is really solid. Picked up those two straps and they do the job well. Definitely noticed a little bit of a harder time climbing hills, but on flat ground, didn’t notice the extra weight.

watching the kiddos play sports is pretty fun.
@ Jetlink « Tue 10:08:18 pm »
He plays better than I did that’s for sure.

Asher made several outs. 1 at home plate while catching and a couple of others while playing second base. Scored a run as well.

Then got to go to my son’s little league game in Lake O. Sunfield was defeated by lake O 9-6.

Got my bikey in today. 15.5 miles at about 13.8 mph. Wasn’t really trying to ride hard today.
@ Jetlink « Tue 10:03:45 pm »
Looks good. Z. That part of the bike packing investment?

you had covid one other time, right?
@ ~Z~ « Tue 12:25:22 pm »
well that’s too bad, thought you said started Monday. You have one of those O2 sensors to put on your finger? Lets you easily see if your O2 levels start getting low.
@ Chip « Tue 12:23:54 pm »
Actually I wasn’t. Mask mandate didn’t start until today
@ ~Z~ « Tue 12:21:53 pm »
glad you’re doing better for the time being at least. keep up on all the fluids. probably a good thing you were masked yesterday to not spread as easily to all your co-workers.
@ Chip « Tue 12:16:07 pm »
Figures, I’m feeling worlds better and my covid test would come back positive 😒😒😒
