One problem faced by touring cyclist is how to get back home once you've reached your destination.
Public transportation is often used, but it's expensive and you have the hassle of packing your bike.
I've thought of a alternative.
How about hitching a ride with a long-haul trucker? Sure, they have rules against taking passengers, but
they're not supposed to pop little white pills and fudge on their logbooks either. Some have even been known to break the speed limit.
I'm betting you could slip a hundred dollar bill to some good-old-boy trucker in say, California, and
he'd be more that happy to haul you as far as he was going.
