Packing List:

Welp. Paul is sick. I’m getting better, but he’s currently on hot shower #2 for the day. Many fingers are crossed. In the meantime, we’re preparing as if we’ll move forward.

That means we’re making sure we have everything we need from gear to snacks to a support crew (as mentioned, this is a supported attempt). At this point, we both feel like we have our packing dialed. We’ve been getting pretty consistent with what gear we’re using over the past several weeks (going with the adage “nothing new on race Picnic day”).

But, just to be on the safe side, we both made packing lists so we could double check everything. It’s a LOT of gear to track.
