Hello, I'm Brian. Originally from Tulsa, OK, but moved near Dallas for a job after college. I haven't really been feeling my current job, so I'm planning on going on a bike tour for a few months and seeing where I end up. Just bought a Surly Long Haul Trucker last week at a LBS in Tulsa (Tom's), which I think think will help me get the job done. Now I'm just trying to acquire all the equipment and take in as much knowledge about bike touring as I can before warmer weather comes along.
