RAGBRAI ’18 Begins

Well, Toni and I are packed and ready to head out. As always, this has been a challenge and we’re hitting the road a little later than planned – 1:30 in lieu of before noon… A challenge for me, not Toni. She was here early as usual.

On the positive side, I was able to get everything including my tent into my bag and under the 50 lb limit. So now I’m wondering what I’ve forgotten and whether I’ll be able to continue to keep it that tightly packed. Packing today was a lot easier than it will be inside a tent… in the dark… at 4:30 in the morning!

This has been a rough week with three nights that I didn’t get home until almost 10. I’m not exactly well rested as I head out today, so wish me luck! We’re looking at about a 4 hour drive through Chicago (which could extend the 5 hours) and across Illinois to get to the ending Town, Davenport, Iowa.
