chris, you could make it. we stayed on the main trail, no ice! the mud was shallow and manageable. and the snow was just fine, like riding on sand. your long legs are a plus. going off the off beaten and single track, that's already tough enough, and then add snow...results could be different as several guys learned the hard way.

that luggage is always full, though i don't need the shit for this ride, it has all the tools and spare parts to do the continental divide. you know, part of the preparation and training.

oh, the purse....have to leave the make up kit to make room for food and drinks. unlike the backpack, it keeps the weight low, easy on the back, and quick access to get things in and out.
