Something is not right...
 
So. I'm 11 (oh eck) days away from leaving for Africa for a year on the bike.

Just finished the packing and I've got room to spare. WTF have I forgotten? Every other time, I mean every other time I've been cramming stuff in rucksacs, suitcases and what not...yet I'm not this time.

So I can only think I've forgotten something...anyone know what it is :)

Nope, mostly that has all been got :)

Still doesn't mean it won't me a mad dash 5 minutes before I go though. I don't like this sense that all is in hand...its un nerving.

The more you carry the more hassle stopping to check something out and the overnight becomes. Not least fuel economy, tyre life etc.
