Vietnam Tour: Day 0

Due to certain national service commitments I had to postpone this trip a few times, and after getting the go ahead from Dad... I booked the tickets...

Just barely a week later, it's today. The day before the flight. I packed my 15L waterproof sack and realised I needed to carry more.

After a few quick searches, I settled for a Deuter Cross Air EXP 20. Rave reviews from both Amazon and CRC made up my mind.

I went to Velocity (Novena) to get a Merino Icebreaker Tech T Lite from X-boudaries, very pricey but wanted to give it a go... I first read about it on and than others. It best quality? Light, keeps you cool and odour resistant. They had quite a selection on Deuter bags as well, but not the particular model I wanted... I proceeded to Beach Rd, but the usual shop was closed...

So I looked around and ended up a Blk 1, just beside the usual Army's boy hangout, called S.K. it's the first shop so you can't miss it! After I quick shake down, I asked for a discount and was pleasantly pleased when they quoted me a price lower than from CRC! Sweet!

Boxed up my MTB following the instructions from this video:

With a new bag, shirt and my bike boxed up I loaded my bike into my dad's car (Love you Dad!) that night and anxiously tried to sleep for the flight tomorrow.
