Well we leave Buffalo, NY for Mobile, AL on June 3rd. By my calendar that 3 weeks from today.
Am I ready??? Only time well tell. I still have some logistics to take care of but physically I just don't know. The weather around here has been crap of late with wind and rain or just wind or just rain. Either way you look at it - crap!
I have been riding, just nothing long or sustained. My commuting has come to a halt because I was getting sick of riding home in 20+ mph winds and now it is raining all week long. It does not worry me, I just enjoy riding my bike and would love for the weather to return to somewhat normal May temps and precip levels for the Buffalo area. Is that too much to ask?
I was hoping to do a ride/camp/ride day this Friday and Saturday morning but the weather is not looking good and I refuse to ride in the rain, just to camp in the cold, and then ride home in the cold again. Plus I found out my daughter has a concert Friday night at school so I will use that as my main excuse and not the weather.
It might happen Saturday to Sunday morning but I would have to be up early and flying home in time for church. I prefer Friday to Saturday because I can relax Saturday so I might put it off until next weekend.
Outside of that I need to get the bike tuned up, a bike cardboard box to ship it to Alabama in, a front rack and panniers to match :), and some more bike mileage.

Have a great day and get out there and ride your bike!
