Security is Mostly Superstition

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. (Helen Keller as quoted in Two Wheels)

I’ve finished reading Travelling Two’s free short guide and begun reading their whole book.

I don’t think I’ll need a lot of new gear:

I would like different handlebars, maybe, but I’ll think about that some more. If I decide to switch once I’m on the road I won’t be able to sell these. I should leave with something I’m happy with.

I need new panniers and I think I’d prefer a basket to a handlebar bag.

These are the sorts of things I’m thinking of.

And the need for more money, more work – if I could get $40/hour that will get me across the line in a year but really any full-time work at $25/hour or more would do the trick.

I’m determined to go between March and June 2015 and can tweak the trip according to how much money I have.

I’m definitely more motivated on the job front now that I have a goal.

I look around the flat and imagine selling stuff, getting rid of stuff, of how little I’ll want to keep and wondering what it will cost to store.
