I love getting notes, and you and my mom are both pretty good at leaving them for me 🙂
In case you haven’t heard, we are planning another long bike tour next summer. This time it will be different, though, because the majority of it will be on trails and dirt roads. To handle the different terrain, we will use different gear – this style of bike touring is referred to as bikepacking. Due to weddings and other craziness this spring and summer, though, we haven’t had a chance for any practice (“shakeout”) tours until now.
This recipe was given to me at my bridal shower by my cousin, Jenn. It’s delicious, and it came with this sweet note from her, which is fitting, since I call Chris my “Adventure Buddy”:
“Congratulations on finding an amazing partner to share life’s adventure!”
…on a bicycle for over 5,000 miles. I found these notes from Chris about where he would hide the engagement ring for our summer 2015 bike trip. No wonder he was so careful with his handlebar bag! 😉
He wound up putting it in a little plastic box, wrapping it up in duct tape, and keeping it between the cloth lining and hard plastic of his handlebar bag.
My time here so far has been great fun! I’ve gotten lots of time with family and friends. I went on a few bike rides, including biking with my dad to work.
