Woods, cars and bikes

Still just looking at backpacking equipment. Checking fuel cans’ weight. Seems I have everything to hike into national forest but permission. It’s odd; we don’t have much resembling authoritarian authority on these restrictions; we probably wouldn’t even be cited for breaking rules. But I’m home until this all “flattens”, as they’re saying. But I’m certainly thinking about the first places here I backpacked after the move. I’ll return there; there’s something sentimental about the places.

And of course this backpacking gear is the same that’s used for moto trips. I’m nicknaming this bike Emptybags. They need filled with simple food — baguette, coffee, oatmeal, nuts. That’s all I need to live on on these trips. And water. The rack will have the tent and sleeping bag. Emptybags for now, national forest for later.
