The further we get into planning the more and more we realize all the things we have to do in-order to be prepared for this trip and what we plan to accomplish. The extra layer of photography and videography makes for more thoughtful planning. Fortunately, we have some amazing companies helping us in achieving our goals. Chris and I have spent many weeks contacting companies who make products that we believe perfectly suit the needs of our goals. Little by little our support team is growing and plans are evolving into what we hope to be an epic adventure that will be documented in an unforgettable way. The first company to show us support was Sena, who was immensely helpful in getting us connected with their 20s bluetooth communication system and Prism action cameras. It didn’t take long and we were making leaps and bounds towards making this trip much more feasible. Much of what we want to do with this trip would have been considerably more difficult or simply impossible without their help. We are so thankful to have such an amazing set of sponsors!
While we work out details about making the trip, we are also trying to make an effort to regularly train as a team. We need to build our stamina for riding 8+ hours a day for a month straight and get a better sense of how we will work as a group while on the trail. Teamwork is essential to get all 4 of us to the Pacific Ocean. We have so much left to do and will use every bit of time between now and June to get ready!
