The Tourist Prayer:

I'm not sure if I should put this in the Jokes & Humor forum or the Touring forum but I am putting it hear.

The Tourist Prayer:

Our Trek which art from Wisconsin,
Touring bike be thy name.
Thy panniers packed.
Thy maintenance done at home, as it is in the LBS.
Give us this day our daily ride.
And forgive us our stealth camping, as we forgive those who have passed to close.
And lead us not into heavy traffic, but deliver us from flats:
For thine is the tent, and the stove, and the journey, for ever.
Amen.

I got the idea from this post:

Give us this day our daily ride,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those that trespass on us.
And lead us not onto illegal singletrack,
But deliver us from equestrians;
For thine is the lycra,
The SPD,
And the knobby, forever,
Amen.
Just thought I would share it. Feel free to make suggestions for changes.

I corrected a typo. However, to suit this forum, it should be a Surly LHT.
