Yes, there's been some progress. It's been slow though... plans changed on what I wanted to equip it with + work/career stuff + spending the past year or so doing more wilderness camping & hiking than riding. It used to be 30% camping 70% riding, this past year it's been 20% riding, 80% backpacking/camping/hiking. Mostly to get away from politics, and humans with their projecting/assumptions/psychological issues.
Hoping to have it built up finally by October.
