Before I go for on a trip whether it is in Europe or just around home, I’m going to need a few things. I can build some for very little, or at least cheaper than buying but some I can’t things like a phone and nook charger, cookware, silverware. A few things like a tube, tube repair kit and CO2 kit I really should have even if I’m not leaving town. I’m working on building a tent, and lightweight bike trailer that will both ideally suit my needs. I’m scouring thrift stores for a sleeping bag but it might be easier to build one of those also. I still have some bills I need to pay but I’m beginning to put things together for a few day test run in May, a kind of Birthday get-a-way.
