Day 28 – September 13th: Herod, IL to Goreville, IL- 80 km

Things I thought I wouldn’t need and realized are indispensable:

My Ortlieb Panniers: Because though everything else is disintegrating, wearing thin and breaking eventually, these are indestructible and watertight.

Kobo Reader: Because after a day’s worth of effort it’s good to unwind and have something to look forward to…
It also serves as dictionary, translator, can store cartloads of books, weighs 500 grams, has one hell of a battery and I don’t need a headlight to read in my tent.
I was skeptic, I’m converted…

My camel bag: Because if I had to stop every time I wanted to drink, I’d still be in Washington.

Extra Charger: Cause otherwise I would spend my days in Fast Foods and Libraries charging my appliances…

My I-pod: c.f my Listening Routine

And all the little things like: my comfy pants (thanks Kamel), my woolen socks (thanks Godmother), my knife (thanks dad) etc…
