Am I hot or not?

The 103° fever seemed to break between 1:00 and 7:00 today, but is back now.  I slept all morning, and the fever dream included the Nurse from Anamaniacs telling me to skip the saddle bags and go for a waterproof duffel.


She was strangely convincing.  Maybe something like this?  Seems good for a weekend trip.

Wonder who's going to show up tonight to help me plan the bike upgrades ....

Heh heh heh... aren't fever dreams fun?

I gave up on panniers on my bike. They tended to attract bees and spiders. (I don't have a garage to park in.) A decent duffel with quick release mounts would serve just as well, and could be removed and taken indoors more easily. In fact, I might look into one for myself. If you see Hello Nurse again, tell her I said thanks.

(Sorry have nothing helpful to contribute. I guess I put a cargo rack on my bicycle one time...)

Get well soon.

My kids still laugh at me for the weird hallucinations I had when a fever went over 104.

Ice bags on your neck, in your armpits, and crotch are uncomfortable, but they'll bring your temperature down.

I have two of the smallish Ortlib bags (smaller than pictured). Very nice. Mine sit on top of the Jesse hard luggage, for when I need to cary WAY TO MUCH.

Good bags. I was also told by some folks in South Dakota that they could see me from a LONG way back because of those bags. I like the roll top closure that is the full length of the bag as opposed to the end fed bags. I think the end fed bags are perhaps more space efficient thought. Zippers suck.
