The first day is always a shambles. It was a mad rush to finish cleaning the house, do a final pack, film the departure and hit the road. I have so much stuff. I rode to my brother Paul’s house to say goodbye. Now I’m at Leeman’s Landing in Two Rocks. My legs are sore and I need to be wary of the impact of using clip-in pedals for the first time. I am not sure how my body will react yet. I face-planted twice when I forgot my feet were clipped in. I am waiting for it to get darker before I lay my bed out, so as not to attract unwanted attention. It is overcast but I don’t think it will rain. I plan on sleeping out in the open. My mind is also all over the place and will probably take a week or two to settle down.
