Another week has burned up but this afternoon my Spot Gen3 Unit arrived.
I also bought the RAM Mount kit for it and it’s currently mounted to my handlebars. I’ve got to wire it up for constant power to the bike but I installed a separate power unit under my seat for just that purpose.
So the list of gear grows. I picked up a Jetboil Flash camp stove last Sunday along with fuel for it. I liked the fact it packs up into a something the size of a Big Gulp and it has it’s own starter, so no messing about with matches. And seeing as I was in the Bass Pro I picked up a couple of other items like Muskol Mosquito repellent, a small Medical Kit, a Spork (because I’ve always wanted one) and some dried meal packs. I also bought some Beef Jerky but it didn’t make it past that night (why is that stuff so tasty?).
As far as kit goes, I think that’s pretty much it, other than a jug for water.
I’m going to start testing the loading of the bike next week. There may be some pannier mods coming.
