A tight squeeze

3 days to go and I finally managed to get all my stuff into the backpack.

The bag weighs about 9.7kg with a full load of water, so after I add the last odds and ends I'll probably get to 10kg. I'll be picking up my big light batteries at one of the support staions, which will add another 0.5kg, so I'll probably end up with around 10.5 - 11kg of kit. Not too bad for 3 weeks of riding - I'll probably have to throw most of the clothes away once I'm finished (or they'll leave on there own accord).

Thanks to everyone who left well-wishes. I'm amazed at how quickly the e-mail network can spread news - I only added the hit counter today, and its already taken 20 hits,
