One week to go

It is now only 7 days until we get on the Boeing 737-300 and fly a great circle of 7077 km out to Calgary.


We only have our hand and carry on luggage to get ready, we will use one bike pannier each for this. Usefully a pannier is smaller than the maximum cabin bag size allowed. Everything else is safely packed and waiting to go. Our hand luggage will be predominantly our electronic and fragile equipment, this will include:

  • Camera and lenses, with a spare battery and memory cards
  • Gopro again with spare batter and memory cards
  • Samsung tablet
  • 10000 mAh battery (x2) these will through charge
  • Assorted cables
  • USA spec wall charger
  • Samsung mobile
  • New sim card (truphone as they offer cheap calls to the UK)
  • Garmin 800 and garmin tour GPS units
  • USB worx charger to use with the dynamo hubs
  • Assorted cables (mini and mico usb)
  • A traditional milometer, important for the maps from the American Adventure Cycling Association
  • Head torches
  • Kindles
  • Food and snacks
  • And of course passports, visas, tickets, insurance etc

For both of us it is our last week at work next week,  there will be some sad but happy goodbyes.
