The day before departure (shopping day)

The day before our departure, we (Bram, Bart, and Koen) "briefly" met at Koen's place. We wondered if we should bring two tents or one tent and a tarp. After an hour, we still had yet to make up our minds. Bram thought an extra tent would be too heavy, but Koen figured it would be more convenient. To prove to ourselves that pitching a second tent would take little time, we pitched one and re-packed it within 8 minutes.  When we were in the village center, we just 'happened' to meet someone Koen really wanted to see. I wonder how he always knows where his crush Yvonne is. We planned to buy groceries and then go swimming, but we spent too much time in the stores. We visited the Blokker, butcher, baker, action, praxis, Boerenbond, and the C1000. We couldn't carry anything more. I had a can of soup under my spanners and my hands full, Bram could barely carry his food, and Koen carried a bread and two packs of yogurt. After 10 minutes, we were ready to start cycling. Near the church, we were joking that the yogurt would fall out in the middle of the crossing. Fortunately, that didn't happen, but Koen did drop the bread. That meant no lunch for Koen the next day.

Distance cycled: 4 km
