in about... hmmm 1979 or so, I passed a fella biking backwards down HWY 6 in eastern Iowa. It was VERY strange to approach someone and realize they were travelling the same direction as you but FACING you!.
If I recall correctly, this fella had a small camera attached to a tiny TV that he used to guide himself. Yeah, at the time, that was not as common as it is today, but that's what it was all about. We chatted for a minute as we drove along. If anyone remenbers this guy, I'd like to hear more.
