Rumor has it that Goat managed to get all his gear together and make his flight. I know that he wasn’t even able to get his frame until this morning. Just a few hours before he got on a plane in San Francisco.
It has proven extremely difficult fitting everything into boxes. The Xtracycle and bike do not fit well in such close quarters. As if it were a Rubik’s Cube, after rearranging the bike pieces enough, it managed to fit.
Unfortunately, I decided to weigh my luggage and discovered the depressing reality that I will have at least 50 pounds of food/gear, on top of a bike that will weigh about the same.It is now 2 AM and I’m pretending to be able to finish preparing for this trip.
I am hoping Sean is able to get everything together smoothly. I look forward to flying from Seattle to Fairbanks with him.
An odd arrangements of flights we have. After Sean and I arrive in Fairbanks, I fly down to Anchorage and he flies up to Barrow, and then all three of us will hopefully converge in Prudhoe Bay.
Wish us luck and look for future updates.
