In two weeks I head west towards the Grand Canyon. As I am riding my 'Black Stalleone' (Suzuki GSX Katana 600 motorcycle) and leaving behind my beloved 87' El Camino, I decided to name the journey after my truck.
So far preparations are coming along well. I made some key decisions today:
- Cargo pants as opposed to jeans
- Itouch + USB drive as opposed to netbook.
- Nike Shox + Clarks Wallabees as opposed to boots + boat shoes
There are still plenty of tasks and decisions before I leave, they should not take me more than a week.
Next week, I plan on sleeping in my tent to get accustomed to the outdoors and set up/take down of my tent.
Finally, I felt my first little tingle of worry as I calculated various finances. It seems I may be leaving here with $100-$300 total. I'm not sure what to make of it yet, but I will just keep saving and selling everything I own.
Wish me luck,
