Technically my TU250 isn't my only means of transportation. It's just the largest and fastest. Without the TUx I have my push bike, and other than that it's just walking or the bus.

Can we count English as a Germanic language? Because linguistically speaking, it is. Given that, I'm rather partial to a decent bitter.

I've tested that. It's actually a fair bit sturdier than you'd expect (except the handlebars. I've had to replace those).

Well, I'm in and paid. It is looking less and less likely that my big tour is happening (I'm short on money, and, to a lesser extent, time). But I should definitely make it down for RDV.

Hammock/tarp. If you set it up high, you can stand. If not, just stand outside your tent to get changed. No one is that worried about privacy when you are in the woods.
