Whether is it dreaming about all the fish I hope to catch, how awesome it will be to just be on the road with my kayak, my car, and my music, or the thinking about what else I need to do to plan and prepare for this trip.
The later is what I have been thinking about the most. I want my plan and trip to be full-proof for success. All my stops, days I plan to fish, days I plan to drive to be all organized and designated for the most part.
One of my most recent purchases was a car GPS, which I think will be a crucial piece of a equipment for a trip like this. My other recent purchase was a Yeti 35 qt cooler to keep my food and drinks for the trip!
I've been camping, I've sleep in my car for 3 days during out of town fishing tournaments, but I have never done a 2 week Marathon trip like this and it truly excites me.
I'm gonna post up my packing list, which is open to all and any suggestions and I really encourage responses to help me hone in on what I really need and what I really don't.
