Laugh Home to Starbucks, and back again!!

After a few days of preparation, I was ready.
Geared up, started the GS, and put in the GPS coordinates. I was off!
GPS showed 3.1 miles, so I planned a 15 minute (in town) traffic, with perhaps a brief stop at the post office to check the mail.
Made starbucks on Peace street in 11 minutes!! WOO HOO!!
A good Americano (venti of course) , and I started out for home.
The GSA (with full panniers and pillion case of course) performed perfectly!

Peace street? You're in Raleigh and you didn't go to Cup a Joe?

For shame, sir. For shame.

I was going for the stereotypical "GSA at Starbucks with $1000 in gear" (helios is my favorite).
In Jest (no, i actually did do SB) re: this post, I am trying to get my technology, posting, photos, etc straight for my outerbanks trip this week, and my month long rockies trip in June....rather figure it out now! (and by "figure it out" i mean, I haven't figured out the photo posting yet....working it)

and so it begins, the baby trip in preparation for this summer to the rockies, and, dare I say, Inuvik?
the first stop (3 miles from home..) HELIOS!!
then, off to the outerbanks for a very civilized "camping" trip to check out what really needs to go on the bike.
A Hudson Bay start is already looking like a wise idea ( i CAN make them!!!) before embarking on longer voyages...I had SOO much junk stacked up...like redundant rain gear....and in the process, damn near forgot the coffee.....thank goodness for the list I created on the iPad!

Short ride

Nice little story and as far as the tech stuff goes practice makes perfect! Sounds like you're planing up a good trip.

Okay, being from Montana, and seeing that I wasn't around in the 1860s, had no knowledge that the Outer Banks played such a role in the Civil War.
Hopefully you can read this.

I thought you Eastern North Carolinians were fond of Krispy Kreme. At least that is where my ex father in law hung. Lived in apartments by Wake Med and then a house in Youngsville for awhile. Sure miss east NC. Great people and great place to live.

Must do the prerequisite Hatteras lighthouse picture, and then I'm out of here back to the mainland.
