Don't skimp on the tools. I have more than I really need on my bike, has come in handy many times for others before.
Have tools, will travel!

I have done a lot of tours and I can't plan a trip to save my life. I just....go.....I thought I had kinda planned my Alaska trip, but apparently I hadn't really. You just meet people along the way and plans change,cool things happen,shit happens.....trying to stay on a plan is stressful.

My next trip I was thinking off taking the Cape May ferry and I realized that it involved actually being somewhere at a certain time and day....pfftttt.....that went out the window...

only reservation I made was in Prudhoe Bay. I did plan a destination for each to keep me on trackl. I was doing Key West to Prudhoe Bay and back to Key West and I had 4 weeks vacation to do it in, so I had to have a bit of plan to keep on track with time. Its very easily to get off track of time, like the day it took me like 5 hours to cover 100 miles when going up the Ice Fields Parkway, there are lots of distractions!!!

Bottom Line, if you have a short amount of time plan a destination for the day and wing it for food and accomodations, I never had an issue finding a place to stay on any night of the trip..........well except one, but that was mine own fault!!
