As Wingee already knows, Celine is really very good at fitting a large number of things into small spaces (i.e. packing 200 lbs suitcases with only clothes). Unfortunately, this skill is a very bad skill to utilize when you are packing for bike tours or hiking tours as this usually means that you have to carry that 200 lbs suitcase all day long.
Luckily, Courier Tiger to the rescue!!! We will drop our "extras" with courier tiger and meet the extras in Seattle or Los Angeles, which ever ends up more convenient. We are so grateful for all the help we've had from everyone! Thank you!
