I met Doug Wertz in Washington State. We rode for a few days through the Olympic Rain Forest down the Pacific Coast together. Tomorrow Doug will start on another bicycle adventure down the Divide following mountain trails and gravel roads. He will be participating in a supported ride and is packing accordingly. He’s got warm to cold clothing for either wet or dry weather. A small First Aid kit, bug and bear spray, tools and tire repair kit, gorilla tape with wire ties, chain lube, spare spokes, chain tool, Leatherman tool, note book, navigation and odometer, water bottles, solar battery, water, spoon, phone and camera. A few items I had on my Pacific Coast ride that Doug did not list included: tent, sleeping bag, cot (light weight), two day supply of freeze dry food, Jet-Boil, three changes of riding gear/clothing, spare shoes, cup/plate-fork-spoon-knife, cash, extra walking shoes, maps, back-up batteries/charger/cables, convertible pants, two pair of street socks, two street shirts, head light, two tail lights, tire tube, tire pump, rain shoe/boot covers, gloves (two riding, one warm long finger), buff, jacket, rain gear (rain jacket-pants-socks-shoe covers) . . . Have a safe and enjoyable adventure Doug.
