    Now that the intros are done let's post a few prep pics. Only because I think Chris's and Duke's opposing prep strategies are hilarious. :lol3

    There was much discussion about what to pack and whether to carry camping gear and what to check on the bikes, how many spare tubes to carry and all that jazz. This is where opposing personality types really started to shine though. :lol3

    Chris's packing prep. :rofl

    We all carried a bunch of stuff. This trip was meant to be a vacation and never intended to be a hard core pound out as many miles as possible in 2 weeks kind of trip.

    Gordy already gave us a bunch of crap about our luggage. :lol3
