I will replace it with my own soon
I would still like to get an Ortlieb Rack Pack for the back so that the tent and sleeping bag could be protected. I still need to get the sleeping bag an tent, however. I had both of those items but the sleeping bag was too huge for sure. The tent I could have lived with, but that sleeping bag needed to be about 1/4-1/3 the size.
So... things are a bit tight. People are starting to donate to a fund set up for me to help me recover from this difficulty, and today I was able to purchase the Ortlieb front panniers.
If you feel like donating, great, if not, no problem. But I do need sponsors. Lots of sponsors.
My packet for the Palace to Palace ride that I just missed arrived in Scotland. My friend in Scotland is sending it to my sister in Texas. I will one day make good on the 2014 P2P ride for all the people that sponsored me.
I've gotten pretty ruthless with my remaining stuff today. I already have another bag of stuff to take to the thrift store, and I may still need to get more ruthless after that, although I won't have anything left to take to the thrift store.
So that's the plan for the moment. Head across the USA on my original route.
