I'm just back from a 4-day, 2400 mile trip (Boston, KY, NC, TN, VA) did lots of google mapping to get the lay of the land (and the location of various dragons and snakes). And then made it up as I...

I'll invest in a decent backpacking tent if I ever get permission to take another multi-day tour, or when I retire, or get divorced, whichever comes sooner.

This is awesome and inspiring, thanks Jamie. Pictures really are worth 1K words. I bought a "bivy sack" at REI, basically a sleeping bag shaped rain suit with bug mesh over the face. Crawl into that...

good non-wired solution for iPhone power

I can't be the first rider to discover this, but the Mophie Juice Pack Air battery case for iPhone 4S is an excellent alternative to wiring in a charging system. I just did three 8-9 hour riding days...
