Would love to hear about your Prep on your DR650 ... but I can't deal with Blogs.

How long to you plan to be on the road?

Good idea to have at least two ATM cards with No int. exchange fees.

Love to see some pics. Much easier than a reverse Blog with adds and other non essentials. ADV is best for all of it, IMO.
Good luck - ride safe!
I'm carrying one front and one rear tube and a patch kit. Also, a manual bicycle pump and an electric pump.

I plan to be on the road 9 to 12 months. If I can make a living on the road, the adventure will continue.

Got two sets of cards. My principle cards from Capital One reimburse the charges.

I'm still figuring out how to best keep people informed. If you subscribe to my blog you'll get the full story. I'm trying to keep 3 communities up to date (ADVRider, HUBB and TWTforums), but I don't want to spend all my time on the internet. I like reporting in, but I like living it better. Bringing in all the content to the 3 communities and updating my blog is just too much. Hopefully I'll find a good middle ground.

Thanks for all the tips and well wishes.
