"The Mighty Glory"
Named by me during the trip after one of my favorite songs that I listened to while riding. Called "Might High" and played by the Jerry Garcia Band.

Brand: Cannondale
Model: T800
Type: Touring Bike
Size: Medium


Interesting Info:
During the trip I often sent home items that I brought and did not use. Important tip about packing for a bike tour, "Less is More."

Items with the text "(home)" next to them on this list are things that I sent home during the ride, usually because the extra weight/space they took up did not justify trucking them around.

Feal free to contact me at anytime about packing info.
