Au Revoir for Now...

I will be looking for a Swiss patch to add to the backpack. 
I'm nervous and ready to start the adventure. The backpack is full of hiking/biking items. The trekking pole handle sticks out, but I think it's okay as is. I can't walk though the airport with it because of its sharp point, which I presume is a security risk. You may recognize the carry-on satchel. It's the one I retrofitted for a handlebar bag. The small pannier is an additional item that contains my helmet, tights, and fleece hoody. I figured I could use the extra warmth in air-conditioned airports. A friend is bringing the tent so I'm traveling light.

Piles of stuff littered a corner of our bedroom for two weeks.
I'm going for a walk before my hubby comes home to transport me to my flight. I'm too keyed up to remain still. I have posts scheduled ahead to fill in the 3-week gap, though I plan on remaining unplugged for the duration.

I will be in the air when you read this. Wish me luck.
