I'm working the next six days between departure trying to gain as much extra money as I can. My train leaves Charlotte at 2:45am and gets to Atlanta around 8:30am. The only downfall of working non-stop is losing out on some conditioning, but that won't be a problem once I get going.
Today I went over my gear again and cut out a few things;
-My ENO bugnet which I figured as its in the colder months the bugs will not be as prevalent
-My water purifier; which was 1lb. I am switching to water droplets.
-I also took out the pot lid to my cookware.
With these things being cut out, I re-weighed my pack with full 2L Camelbak, film equipment, and all my other Gear plus some extra clothing and the total weight came out to 19.8 lbs.
A few other things I've gotten done in the past week are add a GoPro mount to my Subsonic GT 40 to allow for some neat shots on my journey.
|Skate sail- In progress|
The last things I have to do is visit the local skate shop Wallerbears for some fresh bearings, and wheels.
As always stay tuned, as the adventure is nearly upon us!
