    BINGO!! Sure, that'd be a good time to have something like that. It'd also save weight. AND, it'd save time if that became a factor in a long tour. HOWEVER, I did ask if anybody had any...

    Yesterday a very large buss passed by me so close I could've reached out and touched it. Any closer and I could've been one of you guys talk'n about your crash (or maybe not!). I'm giving serious...

    I think you've asked a really good question here. As for myself, I'd like to know what weight others have packed for a cross country tour. Torturing myself with too much weight is nonsense, but so...

    Good for you rhodesmk, you've made a good start on that weight. I'm 5' 7" and at one time weighed 206, which is not close to obese but I was definitely overweight. In addition to riding my bike I...

    JUST TODAY I got buzzed by a huge buss on Hiway 120 a couple of miles north of Oakdale, CA. That monster was SO CLOSE I could've reached out and touched it easily. I know that only a very small per...

    Does one have to have all three items. It'd be nice if one did not have to buy three separate pieces of gear.

    This was always going to be a two way trip from day one. I may have to take a more southern route home to avoid getting snowed in for the winter.

    My original plan was to start in Grant's Pass, ride SW to Crescent City, then north to Seattle. From there it's SE to Miami. However, the coastal route in April looks to be a lot tougher than this...

    Plan "C" would be a good option IF I didn't have a trailer and a dog. However, I just may be able to "hitch" a ride to Seattle from Grant's Pass. Then again, maybe skipping the coast for now and...

    DON'T take a firearm into Canada. They're about as anti-firearm as they come.
  22. Another Pacific Coast N/S, S/N question.

    When do the winds along the Oregon/Washington coast start to kick in with a gusto? I've been told April is the start but I'm hoping it's later. Has anybody toured there in April?

    If you are going this year I can give you a place to hang out a couple of days and clean up. However, after the beginning of spring next year I'll be doing the same thing as you (touring). Let me...
