Perhaps I should stop doing so as it feeds my already well-developed FoMO (Fear Of Missing Out) but I still routinely check a number of bikepacking groups on Facebook. I guess it's my way of remaining connected with our friends who are still out on the road while we're back in Canada doing our best to settle down.
