From tomorrow it will be one month until I leave for New Zealand! There is currently snow here which makes it difficult to ride. I'm looking forward to chasing the summer!
Planning a bike tour is like planning a wedding. There is a lot to do at first, but then you just wait until its almost time to go, then there is another flurry of activity. At the beginning of February, I'll give Betsy her final and very thorough cleaning. At that point, any riding around home I do will be on Stella (it is nice to have more than one bike).
I've been looking up possible CouchSurf hosts and Warmshowers hosts. There are several possibilities. Everything else is ready.
The waiting is the hardest part!
