Takin' off Saturday

I am going on my first overnighter this Saturday. I will ride 20 miles, about 2/3 gravel, to the local state park. Then I'll ride back Sunday.
I am going to do one small cheating thing though. Wifey is going to come and get me and take me out to dinner on Saturday night, so all I need for food is snacks, tea, and Sunday b'fast. I'll be taking a small gas stove.
I am looking forward to it.

Enjoy yourself and I hope you have good weather. As for cheating -- its hardly cheating since there are no hard and fast rules for touring. Tour however is the most fun for you and don't worry about what others do.
