Well, we leave tomorrow morning. We're almost set. Everything we think we'll need has been purchased. We're working on seeing how much of that will be feasible to take with us since space is limited in our panniers. (Note: my panniers did NOT arrive in time, so I ended up buying some here in Chicago. I'll have to return the others. Boo.)
I had originally planned on going to my hometown to see my family tonight, but time just didn't allow for that. I'm bummed about that.
