And rain.

I was hoping to get a good ride in the rain done before the trip began, but since I'm shipping my bike tomorrow, I didn't think I'd get one in.


It poured, and it thundered. Apparently, my family was worried about me when they saw the bike gone this morning. Sorry...

Conclusion: I wish I knew where my rain cap was. It would've been nice to have had more than my sunglasses to keep the rain out of my eyes. Also, no matter how waterproof your raincoat is, if you're riding a bicycle in the pouring rain, expect to get soaked. What you're aiming for with the raincoat is that it will not be rain-drenched when the rain stops, and you won't break into a bout pneumonia from the cold you might endure if it was as soaked as everything else you're wearing.

Also, it was sweet.

Every time, literally every time it has rained here I have been gone for the day or it has been at night. Guess I'll be flying blind as far as all that goes...
