    I stuff my tent and don't worry about it. I try to stuff it so the bottom stays "on the outside" to keep rain out of the upper body.

    I stopped at a view point on the Cabot trail. Some biker was telling a couple of biker chicks how they were riding "real" motorcycles (they all had Harleys). As soon as the guy left, one woman turned...

    I've been here longer than most and things haven't changed much. They change more season to season than year to year.

    My guess is YOU changed. You're not looking for answers anymore. You should be...

    It's a snapping turtle. You don't want to mess with those. Their neck extend quite a bit their and mouth... well, they're not called snapping for nothing.

    Not much touring this year. I spent my time hiking and backpacking. I did go to a park I visit every spring and caught this turtle laying eggs:

    I'm pretty sure these two are having a blast. They've been at it for 25 years.

    It's a bit of a hassle, I don't always bring the legs, and the shorts get faded from the sun. I still prefer a separate pair for other reasons anyway.

    I don't like them simply because I wear the shorts way more often so they fade and don't match the legs after a few washes. Putting the legs on can be a hassle as well. I prefer lightweight nylon...

    There's no law against it. It's just extra weight and big bags might run quite low on some racks so watch for curbs.

    Liquor and weed are much lighter. Also, that's a heavy stove you got there. The Litemax is a whooping 40g lighter.

    Language, culture and other unknowns are a concern but what stops me is limited vacation time, logistics and cost of flying. After paying mucho dollars to get somewhere while worrying about my bike,...

    My headlight is dynamo powered and bolted to the rack. Not very useful as a flashlight. If your bike light isn't bolted to the bike like most battery headlights, you can forget it just the same.

    Hey, this is a PG-13 forum.

    I forgot things but I forgot what it was. Seriously. I may have forgotten my flashlight and used the standlight on my dynamo light. I do forget things and ride off...

    I carry salt & pepper for bland couscous, a swiss army knife for splinters and a mirror for those two-semis-and-a-bike-don't-fit-on-that-narrow-road.

    I knew someone would point out some touring unicyclist. :) But then, it's not a bi-cycle if it doesn't have two wheels.

    You don't say if it's for riding, camp or at what temperature.

    I already have a windbreaker so I layer underneath using any combination of:

    - t-shirt
    - long sleeve underwear (thin & tight)
    -...

    I ride a Surly LHT Bike Forums Special. I'll take a MTB crankset over higher gears any day. Walking a loaded bike uphill sucks big time but coasting downhill is easy.

    According to this review, it's not comfortable at all. Neoair XLite 3/4 is 8 ouces. I bet the Neoair is a lot warmer too.

    At 25mph on a downhill, I keep pedaling to get faster. It isn't scary at all. I hardly ever brake on tour. You compare unloaded bikes but we're talking about touring. Try the same exercise with 20lbs...

    Riding the bike isn't always the #1 activity. Actually, I spend more time off the bike on every trip. I certainly spend more time sleeping than riding.
