These items do not include basic hygiene products and food that I may or may not be carrying. Are there things I could do without? Most definitely. Having the pillow, while not necessary, does help me at night. Blogging would be very difficult without my laptop. Hopefully, some things-- the rain jacket, mosquito net and spare tubes-- only get minimal use. Let's also hope that all this stuff makes it back in one piece.

Hey man, trip seems to be going well! Your equipment list seems pretty solid. I've never biked across the US but in my travels I find that going light is one key. The other is Ex Officio. Looking forward to the next installment of your travels!

I'm thoroughly enjoying. Hang in there! If not, I'll have a crazy, South African art teacher come after you. And be sure "Nancy" will be running close behind carrying her purse.

Plus I have lots of family in Boise if you need anything. They even run an outfitter supply company for any supply needs.
