This coming weekend we will be doing a dry run with all our gear on our bikes. Our plan is to ride as much gravel as possible to a state park that borders a lake and camp overnight. Given the three-digit temps and humidity, I probably will not wear the gear planned for Oregon. I also am excited to try out the new gadget: a Kodak zi8 pocket video camera. It won't do duty as a helmet cam, but capturing some video on our trips will be a fun experiment.
