Things are getting pretty exciting as the start of the ride quickly approaches! I cannot believe it's almost here after all this time. We are doing really good at checking everything off the to-do list. Sage just got his new saddle so we're busy breaking that in. We're picking up the last of the gear we needed. We're finalizing the route (now for the trillionth time). I think the hardest part is getting everything else in our lives in order. Ryan and I both have a ton of work to do at our jobs, and then there's organizing the housesitter, multiple petsitters, bills, etc. It's a lot of work to take off to do a long ride! haha I will be very relieved when we start.
So, mark your calendar! We'll trailer out to the start point on August 10 and will start riding early in the morning on August 11. Remember, I'll be carrying a tracking device which will be linked to the homepage of this website so you'll be able to see where we are and follow along. I'll also try to post photos and updates when I have cell service. That won't be very often so you'll have to wait for the full story of our ride when we return home at the end of October!
I'll leave you with a peek at some of the AMAZING places Sage and I will be riding through this fall. A few weekends ago Ryan and I drove out to scout some of the sections. Holy smokes it's beautiful out there. Gotta love Nevada!
