I'm still really pumped to be get to ride across the U.S. and raise support and awareness for poverty. But already the nervousness is starting to set in. I feel that I need to decide on what I am going to bring along quite soon, so that I have enough time to test out the things that I need to buy.

Also, I am nervous about how I am going to train over the winter. It won't be snowy and slippery for a couple months, but it is already getting dark early by the time I get out of work. Plus in a month daylights saving time starts (or ends, I'm never sure which it is), so it will be dark by the time I'm available.

There is a private forum that was setup recently that is allowing the cyclists and support staff a chance to dialogue. From the posts that I'm reading, I'm intimidated by some of the other cyclists skill.

Even though I'm nervous I know that I can do this, even though I will have to devote a lot of energy and time to this good cause.
