I leave for San Francisco tomorrow morning, early. Rowing time early. That means being packed today.
Unfortunately, I am slightly apprehensive about my level of preparedness. Walking around today in the 7 degree Celsius rain made me reconsider some of the clothing I'll be bringing. Or better stated, some of the clothing I won't be bringing. Thankfully I'll have 4 days in San Francisco to sort out the details.
I'll have to figure out food and water there. The common pre-race refrain of "dump your water" keeps playing in my head. DId you know that a gallon of water is just over 8 pounds? I must confess I had never really thought about it. I'm usually on top of the water, not lugging it over the Rocky Mountains. I will be taking several gallons of water.
