Gettin’ serious – 50 days to go

Plane tickets bought! We have a set departure date – Saturday March 30th. As well, as more people at work learn about this trip it starts to feel more. Jesse is in the other room putting the fenders that we purchased last weekend on our bikes. Maybe this weekend we will do a trial pack to see just how much we are expecting to fit into the panniers we have.

We’re flying with Air Canada and then United Airlines so we still have to find out the best way to pack our gear to avoid additional baggage charges as much as possible. We fly from Montreal to Chicago, and then from Chicago to San Diego. We are hoping it will be as smooth as possible with check-ins and customs, but we know to be ready for anything.

Side comment: Snow storm in Montreal today, -20C in Montreal yesterday, high of 14C and sunny in San Diego tomorrow.
