    Cool

    I hauled my puppies around!

    Sort of.

    Ok so we're just learning how to bike together, but I think it counts.

    Watch video HERE.
    I have to figure out how to make my camera take smaller pictures- all of a sudden they are too big to post here.

    Wal-Mart run yesterday on my Big Dummy. 2 large bags full of various things we needed. Weather here in the St. Louis area has been atrocious until a couple of weeks ago. Hoping to run errands much more often as the weather gets more bearable.

    Good job teaching them! My dog is riding trailers and riding a longtail bike as the most natural thing in the world! Also as a result (I think) is that he is not barking at or chasing cyclists (he is a Bordercollie so chasing is in his spine).

    Once they do that life is so much easyer. You can take them on trips much longer than what they can run (in hot weather that can be almost cero). Also if you ride with them and they get some sort of injury you can bring them home no problem.

    Soon they learn that the rides are really exiting, and that if they need they can rest in the trailer. Two years ago we did a 160 km in two days ride- with the dog. He spent a lot of time on the bike but was really happy to be with us. Especially as they get older they still need to get out and sniff and look but is often left at home for practical reasons. I think a lot of dogs are almost bored to death these days.

    You often read about riding with dogs in the forums, peopel sying "my dog can not do this or refuses to do that". It is all up to the owner.

    I dropped off a crock pot someone brought to a party, and I picked up a gallon of milk.

    To the dude who mocked me while I was loading up my box fan and implied that women were stupid and I hadn't planned my shopping very well, and also said that I'd end up calling a taxi to get home.

    Suck it.

    ^ Ha, good one. Happened to me a couple of times - people said "you won't be able to carry that on your bike" and they were wrong (I'm a guy, though).

    Got to put the new panniers to the test this afternoon... they swallowed 6 bags of relatively heavy groceries and had tons of room to spare... didn't even get a chance to try the new integrated tie downs on the top deck.

    Took the trailer on a 6mi round trip ride to pick up a 30lb box. That's the longest distance i've taken then trailer.. I had to go through some industrial areas with sketchy road conditions and semi trucks but made it through unscathed. funnily enough i felt some solidarity with the semis since i was hauling cargo too.. not sure how they felt though

    went on a 10mi ride to the computer, art and grocery stores this evening.. I swear I got all my errands done almost as fast as if I had taken a car. Had to ride through some industrial areas again where I was glad to be riding a fat tire bike

    Had a "spoke break" on the rear wheel on one bike, hooked up the utility trailer to the "back up bike" and headed down to the LBS. Picked up new tires for both the utility trailer and my wife's commuter bike while there and headed home!

    It was yesterday but I took a old BSO to the LBS for "Christmas Give Away" on my utility trailer, which I did a final update and bailed the "wood platform" to hold the rear wheel and bolted on a actual "bike hanger rail", looks and work much better!

    Well, not so many errands for me, today.
    On the way home from my workplace, I just stopped at an ice cream parlour to get a box of ice cream for Mrs. Atvar.
