you're only gonna be gone for two days, so you can probably get by with
about half of what you've got laid out on the couch.

the ride is longer than you thought, there's more wind than you expected,
the hills are taller and steeper than indicated on the elevation profile, and
you ignored boomhauer's advice.

and mine. you still packed too much stuff.

so one last bit of advice. don't set off with NEW gear.
especially your shoes.

is gonna suck pushing up that loooooong, steep hill with sore feets.
