90% done with prep work for the Voyager. I must say its a bit more stressful prepping for this due to the fact you have to handle everything yourself and carry a lot. I am looking at a 23 pound bike from St. George to Kanab without water as I will be carrying a rack and a moderately large case. I will be carrying a chain and spare tire from the get-go which adds some weight. The first 85 miles are pretty easy and I am hoping I can make good time to Kanab. I will be picking up one of my panniers in Kanab with a camelbak which I hopefully will not need, but am going to take just in case. The next 120 miles has a nice gradual climb in it to about 7500 feet and a nice descent and more climb to Escalante. I will be picking up the motherlode in Escalante with ski pants, fugujack jacket, heavy bib shorts, bivvy sack, bar mitts, etc. I might have been able to put this off until Loa, but there is a climb to 9600 feet after Boulder and I dont want to freeze. I am guessing with both panniers I will be close to 40 pounds bike and gear into Loa. The "real feel" at Loa is supposed to be 31 degrees, so I will need to load up on gear. Last year it was FREEZING and I dont want to feel that alone, so I have over-done it this time. The next section to Panguitch looks like a piece of cake on paper, but it was harder that I thought it would be with a ton of rollers, and false flats. The crux of the ride comes after Panguitch with the 4500 foot total climb to Cedar Breaks. I hopefully will be able to shed a bunch of cold gear for this as the forecast looks pretty warm for the second night as we drop to warmer temps in St. George. Who knows what will happen. All I can say is that after getting all the gear together and seeing how heavy it is, any thoughts of specific times have dropped out of my mind. I really want to enjoy this and of course finish. I would be happy with finishing with enough time to get some sleep on Sunday night. Thats about as much as I am going to hope for now.
