this is a rant
you know what I really don't enjoy. A lot of things. The internet being one of them. I hate coming on here and looking at satillite images of towns, and finding secluded beaches to camp on. I don't like going to google and finding out which roads are the smoothest and that at kilometer number 165 there is a small grocery store and that if you stop there talk to joe and linda because they'll put you up for the night. It just seems to lack the mystery, that mystery which makes touring so interesting.
So I've been trying not to do this as much. But I see people on here asking what the roads are like, and how hard is this hill, or will brooks hurt my butt. God dammit, just go out and test yourself. If you can't do it then you've learned a lesson. I hate the internet, and lazy people.
Don't get me wrong, I'm lazy too.
Arg. I do love riding a bicycle though.
I know not what is out of reach until I die trying to accomplish it. I know thats a little harsh, but hell, it's true ain't it.
Sometimes I wished that things weren't so easy, and that the only way to find the answer to a question was to get out there in the fresh air and fall down - bruise your arse and come to your own conclusion.
this is touring related, dammit
