If it’s Thursday, I must be in Seattle

more days!

Wheel full 70px I’m transiting Sea-Tac International Airport. Gosh, it’s been a long time since I’ve been in the “D” gate area.

Wheel full 70px I’d kind of forgotten how difficult posting to a WordPress blog is since last fall. By November I’d pretty much become a whiz at it, but today it seems like I’m all thumbs.

Wheel full 70px My flight to Minneapolis boards in about an hour, so I can stretch a bit and get the Alaska Airlines-induced kinks worked out a bit. Big guys just aren’t really meant to fly these days, I guess. My flight to Minnesota is about 15 minutes longer than my flight from Anchorage to here. Oh well.

Wheel full 70px I had a bit of a bad moment when they weighed my two boxes of panniers and gear this morning. 36 and 24 pounds/16.33 and 11 KGB respectively.  Sixty pounds/27 kg total.

Wheel full 70px The boxes, both heavy-duty duty double thickness cardboard, weigh about 10 pounds/4.5 kg together.  So that’s still 50 pounds/22.5 kg of stuff. It looks like there will be some culling needed before I start out on Saturday.  I’d hoped to be a lot closer to 40 pound/18 kg, which was my panniers and gear weight on the Atlantic coast ride last year.
