Cheers! Definitely planning on posting in RR. Have been (sometimes with discontent) tied to one place for too long (spent over a decade travelling around the world on my own before house and business), and the ride will remind me that I can indeed get by with "nothing more than a pack and a song." Circumstances are changing no matter what, and not yet sure which way the wind is blowing, but have needed a self-inflicted kick in the arse to remind myself that I can be happy with very fecking little. A long distance ride should be a damn fine and affirming reminder.
