How to Pack Bromptons for Extended Tours

About to head off to New Zealand. Made a video of what we are carrying for the next three months.



Cheers!

Nice., I have some questions.

1. Do you miss using the Long Haul Truckers at times?
2. Are you going to continue using the Bromptons from now on?
3. How long does it take to make those excellent videos and what software and equiptment do you use?
4. Are you guys writing a book?
5. When does this tour end?

Steve,
Here ya go.

1. Do you miss using the Long Haul Truckers at times?
Yes, we do miss the LHTs on occasion. Especially on really rough roads and descents - they practically rode themselves.

2. Are you going to continue using the Bromptons from now on?
We're going to use them as long as they make sense. They're great for travel and handle paved roads and some fire roads fine. If we do an off-road tour, we would probably use different bikes.

3. How long does it take to make those excellent videos and what software and equiptment do you use?
We've been getting faster at making the videos. None of us were trained at this and learned by trial and error. Look back at our earlier videos and you'll see. We're pretty lofi with software and just use iMovie that came free with the Mac. Tried Final Cut but the Mac Book Air is too slow to run it. So we use what we got.

4. Are you guys writing a book?
We're keeping notes and journals with a book perhaps in the future.

5. When does this tour end?
When it's no longer fun!

Love that link! Our thoughts exactly! Also wondered why in The Road and 28 Days they didn't grab a bike!
