On Monday, I am leaving Normal, Illinois and heading north about 50 miles to pick up the Northern Tier route, and then going west. I started a journal at crazyguy........
I'm pretty doggone anxious. Should be close to a four month tour if completed as planned. Of course, I only loosely planned it (bought the ACA maps and called it a plan). The equipment list I have on the journal is not at all complete. I still need to add a few things I forgot, suchas cell phone and charger, first aid stuff, etc. I listed it all off the top of my head. I'll fix it up before I go.
I don't know how realistic it will be for me to update it very regularly. One tip I received for up[loading pictures is to go to a one hour photo place and have all your pictures put on a CD. Many libraries won't allow or their computers won't recognize your camera when you connect it.
