So far, today - climbed Raton Pass, crossed the CO state line, rode without pedaling down Raton Pass for about 8 miles, found Trinidad, new pedals, tires, saddle, and installed them all. As far as the bike is concerned, I have no more issues to solve.
You have requested pics of the loaded bike, so here you go, plus a few more.
On to Walsenburg.
