Ditto! This gloom is getting to me! Think you said you're taking a few supplies for the bike, including a tire/tires? Anything else you thought might be useful?

Mud

Those pictures of muddy roads look worse than any mud I've ever ridden on by a long way. You're doing it solo in a remote area - what an adventurous spirit!

Really enjoying your report!
