- We cooked on the camp stove twice. And we both still have both of our eyebrows! And . . . this one is very important . . . Melissa figured out the "perfect grind" for the french press that we are taking.
- I planned out ("planned" being a very loose word) the first couple weeks of the tour, looking at where we might camp each night. I realized biking across the country is going to take a long time! (Okay, I already knew this, but actually seeing it on paper was a different beast all together.)
- We then (because of the aforementioned) had a small melt down about our June 21 departure date, wondering if we should be leaving earlier. Will we make it to Yellowstone before the roads become impassable from snow?! (Mmmmm, I guess we didn't actually accomplish anything here -- unless night sweats count.)
- I also put together a first aid kit. So . . . if we do get hypothermia and frostbite while in Montana, at least we will have some antibacterial cream and Band-Aids to dress it.
