Wow, the day is here! In less than 12 hours we will role out toward Northern Minnesota. The plan is to spend a night with family then head for Baudette, MN. Like most trips, the plan is laid out and then before you know it the day is here. Packing a bike trip for 5 people is complicated to say the least!
5 sleeping pads
5 sleeping bags
hats (cause it's gonna be cold)
The list goes on and on. Then there is food. We will blog about food in the future. As for now, it is complicated. The beginning of the trip is when you have the largest load and then after several days when you go stronger, you are out of everything and the trailer and bags feel so much lighter! Last year we found it helpful to freeze a few meals and use those meals as ice packs for our cold bag for a couple of days. Hamburger helper worked really well for this and this year we added taco meat. The plan will be to grab some chips at a grocery store prior to going to the camp site then pigging out once we get there. Anyway, here is a look at our preparation to camp. If you have any questions please feel free to ask below.
We are nervous. It is going to be a big trip. It will come together.... it will.
