San Diego, CA to St. Augustine: Day Before the Ride

Loaded Big Red this morning and took her for a ride to Ocean Beach. I spent two hours last night dividing gear into 4 panniers. Today, the weight felt good and well proportioned. Including BIG RED, I estimate my gear weighing about 70 pounds. I'm confident that I will be sending a few things home at some point. 

Had one hiccup this morning. When attempting to inflate my pump became "sticky" and stopped working. After attempting to fix it I decided to find a bicycle shop and purchase a new one. On a trip like this it is important to have gear that works. 

In morning I'll begin my trek at 5am in hopes of beating some of the San Diego traffic. Tomorrow's route is a 75 mile stretch of roller coaster hills. The first 25-30 miles will be urban bicycling. I hope to end the day in Boulevard, CA.
