I agree with the above. I road singles for years with a saddle that worked well, then we got the tandem... Same saddle worked fine for one hour rides on the tandem, but our first 5 hour ride was very tough on my bum. Still can be although I changed saddles twice. I didn't appreciate how much shifting I do on the saddle when I ride single, including standing up. On the tandem it isn't as easy to wiggle, stop pedaling off and on, stand, etc. Work this out - as well as the other bugs BEFORE a big, expensive, long trip.
And I too am jealous, have a great time.
