Haha..I just love living in the moment.. nothing is ever a problem, just issues to be work with and resolve.. Well at least that's my take on it..
Sunday was a beautiful day. Sun shining, car packed and travelling along the Hume, to our destination - Albury. Dropping our little people with their grand parents for the next 2 weeks left mixed emotions. Jim and I felt the oddness that comes with driving back to Melbourne on our own. Knowing the kids weren't going to be with us for 2 wks felt "weird". We just sat with that knowing, as with any adaptive process, it would become 'less weird' with time.
Monday morning rolled on. We woke to a fairly sunny morning. We went for a run together (again, 1st time as we normally tag team our exercise in the morning)..I love 1st time anything!!
Over the morning we checked the bikes, packed our gear, loosely discussed the general direction we wanted to head.
I laid out my gear - too much!!. I ended up buying a US30 DryBag - 100% waterproof drybag / tailpac - from Andy strap (thank you to a fellow netrider member for recommending this site). The beauty of this set up, is that I can buy a 20lt, 10lt, or 5lt dry bag to attach to the 30ltr. I may have too if I want to pac my kitchen sink..lol. Good ol' Jimmy bought himself a 50ltr dry rider tailpac. Being a minimalist, I was able to utilise a little of his space.. I love this man..x I am constantly trying to understand what is the absolute minimum you require in order to survive..One day I hope to work it out..
