Welcome to the second part of our blog post Our idea becoming real, part 2. Here we continue explaining our progress from idea to reality. Currently preparations are progressing and we are on schedule, at least we think so. See Our idea becoming real, part 1 to read what we have covered already.
In July we returned from our trip to the Pyrenees excited and full of energy. It had been a great experience and the bikes did well. Still there were months between then and where we are now.
We deviated from our project meetings and focused on what is important now and solved the issues. Still paying attention to our savings all the time. We had learned from our trip in the Pyrenees how important the right gear will be for us. Gear meaning the equipment that will form our daily life on the journey. So we reviewed what worked well and what less and started to look for alternatives. Martin had some issues with clothing that did not keep up to speed in the Pyrenees and this was returned or repaired.
