|salsa with her fixin's.|
I went super minimalist on my previous bike trips but I actually ended up hoteling it and eating at gas stations, etc. so it was pretty simple to pack and stow what I'd need to ride all day. This time it's a bit more complicated but I am doing my best to honor my minimalist code and nature of the delicate flower--I am far too pretty and delicate to carry any extra ounce along with me. I shall be most discriminate if an item is to earn its ticket east.
Below are my selections of gear, thoughts on why I went with that, and issues I foresee yet am barreling ahead with anyway.
