Get the Gear

My family has a gear obsession. My father has different hike boots for dry weather, for muddy cold weather, for warm rain, and for climbing up rocky terrain. He similarly has four different down parkas depending on the temperature, the wind speed, and the precipitation. This makes getting ready for any outdoor activity time consuming. (An extremely accurate depiction of this process can be viewed here.) This is an inherited obsession and one which made packing for this adventure very difficult. 

We read several books (Adventure Cycling-Touring Handbook and Basic Illustrated Biketouring and Bikepacking among them) to prepare for our adventure.
