I'm wondering what any of you do come vacation time...
I recently returned from a trip to Mexico. Admittedly, my wife and I flew, but --against all advice -- we did not rent a vehicle, but rather took buses for the whole trip (except for a couple of brief taxi rides...) Several times we took advantage of a "collectivo" - a large van something like US rideshare that heads to a specific destination. In all, I really didn't want to drive anywhere... too stressful for one thing and I had a perfect vacation w/o a car rental.
On the other hand, the Mexican vacation is an awful carbon footprint sink, considering the airplane ride. I am , however, a faithful lurker in the Touring forum and I think a bike-camping trip leaving right from my door on my trusty Bianchi is in my stars. For the past several years, I have handle a real itch to hit the road with a tent and sleeping bag... I'm not even sure why... It must be some deep feeling that a bicycle tour could be a lot of fun.
What are you carfree vacation plans or fantasies?
