All Our Stuff

allourstuff.jpgSo, what do you do when you have a rest day? Spread all your stuff out in front of your tent, of course, and take a picture of it!

We’ve been meaning to do this for a while, actually. Ever since a passing cyclist in New Zealand called out to us that we had ‘too much stuff’ and ever since Grace suggested this idea to us way back in Australia. So, here it is. All our stuff in all its glory.

What’s that, you say? You can’t make it all out? Maybe it’s better that way. If you look really closely you’ll find things like 8 pairs of socks, 4 merino wool tops (we love those cozy things), a short-wave radio, denture cleaner (for our bottles) and no less than 4 books. Then there’s all the food, including at least 10 different types of spices, that we didn’t even get around to spreading out.

No doubt a few seasoned cyclists will write to tell us how we could pare it down but we won’t likely listen. We’re used to the weight. We’re comfortable with what we have. And for the last 10 days we’ve covered nearly 100km a day. That’s not bad going for two people on bikes with 11 bags on board…

    Wow 🙂 I must admit to wondering how you decided what to travel with 🙂 LOL
    Thinking of you in the warmth of the sun…..winter is upon us now and its been a bit bleak & cold the past few days. Occasionally we get a brilliant blue sky, frosty morning and it just sets us up to endure the the bleak days when they come. (hope that made some sort of sense LOL)
    Well done on getting so far already. You will soon be home:)
    Love & Hugs from New Zealand

    Looks like you got a nice day for the picture! We definitely plan to look at what we ended up with when we get home – versus what we started with … including all the changes to software on our computer!
    Ride safe.

    Hey, you’re absolutely right. We take as much as we can too and not as less as necessary 🙂 Big smile.

    But let me ask something: Since you have announced your route through North America, I wonder: what about South America? Do you really miss out that wonderfull part of the world?

    Big squeeze for you two

    Hi Yves & Ingrid, yes, what about South America indeed??! Well, we’d love to see it but honestly, we need a break. There’s nothing to say we can’t take off again in another year! Maybe you can come with us 🙂
