    Solo, self-supported touring

    I just completed another solo, self-supported tour (posted in a different thread.) So many people asked me about what steps they would need to take to do something similar that I put together my own "How To" guide. Here's the link:

    Those of you that have done the same might have some tips that I've missed. If so, please let me know and I'll be happy to include them.

    Distance touring carrying 2x CO2 cartridges? I'm not knocking CO2, but Genuine Innovations at least makes a pump that also takes CO2 cartridges. That way if you futz a cartridge you're not sitting by the roadside looking dumb.

    I totally agree. That's why I also carry the Topeak Road Morph G pump and use that, whenever possible. I carry the CO2 cartridges but don't really use them.
