I just heard about this ride 2 weeks ago and the more i read the posts, i want to ride it. Question. Does it typically rain on the ride each year and if so to what extinct. Is it a daily thing and if so how do people prepare for it. Mostly keeping the tent/bag dry. I live in Seattle WA. so i know about rain just not to that extreme. Enjoy reading the post and hope to hear from some past or present riders. Thanks all.
