I don't really have a specific reason to be posting this, but I feel like rambling on about touring....

And then every once in a while it will mix it up and look like this:
I feel like that would be an amazing tour for someone who wants to tour for the solitude. I can picture my self biking by day, stopping at small towns for food, pulling off the road for half a mile or so, and camping in the middle of nowhere for the night. It just feels right. I would never worry about where I'm going next, what obstacles to face the next day, and never think about having to pick a place to camp. Beautiful scenery, awesome sunsets, and little traffic.
I dunno, I just felt like posting this. I just felt like posting what I feel like my next tour is going to be.
