Monday morning, we unloaded the KLR and KTM, so I could go and return the rental truck. The plan was this would take about one hour, and we would still be able to get an early start, but it wasn't that easy. The maps and contact information I received from Budget was not accurate, and I didn't return from dropping it off until around noon! I had told the guys to go ahead without me, and I would just catch up. I would soon regret making that statement. By about 1 PM, I was on the trail, overloaded, but happy. The rain started at about 5 minutes into the ride.
