|Accumulating piles of stuff for the GAPCO trip.|
I can't find anything!
I became frustrated, bugging my husband at work. Where's this? Where's that?
After too many of those hair-pulling episodes, I began to horde the items I used the most. My three piece utensils and favorite mug, lightweight sleeping bag, small tent, and ground pad are stored in one box. (Heaven help my husband if he touches said box without my permission, like my toolbox.)
Now, I easily pack panniers without frustration. Between consulting a list of trip essentials for reference and readily accessing gear, I recently got ready for a bike overnight in one hour. Yes, one hour. There was even time to treat myself to lunch. Hallelujah.
*I will be off-line until September 29th.
