The Idea has been floating around in my head for a few weeks now. Even changed my signature a couple of weeks ago. Right now It is real early in the planning, but hey have to start someplace. I'm thinking of a 2 night 3 day tour within about a 3hr drive radius of my house (in case I need rescuing). Most likely in the fall when it starts to cool off a bit. Being the first time ever trying anything like this I'll use the credit card rather than camping. I actually have a route in mind but still need to do a bit more planning. YEP I have been reading a lot in the touring section on here I know I could do this post over in the touring section... but hey this is where I'm comfy.
1.. Convert my old Tassajara mountain bike into a touring bike (has lockout forks). Get some tires, panniers, maybe some fenders and other stuff I might need. I think this confuses me more than anything... what kind of panniers do I get, Trunk Bag??... SO many to choose from.
2.. Ride more... lol.... I have to be able to do 50miles a day or so.. At one point no prob... right now.... well I need to ride more...
Anyway.... Figured if I made a post with my plans ... well it might help me along a bit.. keep me motivated...
I'll update this once in awhile as I figure things out..
Please feel free to chime in with any ideas, hints, help or advice.
