We have been very busy for the last three months. Visitors from Europe and the Caribbean, weddings, birthdays, and new renovations to the house; have kept us busy but with our eyes resting on... our well deserved motorcycle tour 2011!
- New tires - done
- Oil change - done
- New outfit - done!!!
My husband is putting together everything we will need for the weather conditions up north, particularly, Alaska. This includes, leather jackets, heated jackets and gloves, rain gear, plus the motorcycle cover and our laptop. I'm taking care of things we will need to endure the hot weather and rain on our way up! Hopefully, we will have nice, sunny days... hopefully!
Everyone wants to know how we pack for such a long trip on only 3 saddlebags... this time we will need to pack for two different weather climates! To save space, we roll up the clothes very tight. This way we have extra space to put the things we buy on the way. If there is too much to carry, we just use USPS!!! Usually we pack for four days and on the fourth day, we do the laundry at the hotel and keep on going for few more days with fresh and clean clothes. We take a pair of sandals; our swim suit, sun block lotion, and our toiletries bag, containing very little makeup for me... pressed powder with UVA protection, lipstick and mascara. Facial cleanser and moisturizer, razors, deo, perfume, and dental care will complete the package. You will not believe how much you can put on those saddlebags!
Yes! Just couple of minutes, and we will be on our way!
