On a side note, I just installed my first farkle. A rear rack. Looks great.

On another side note, is there anymore information on the BRT trip that was being planned for the Summer time? I'm collecting my gear slowly, but my Summer weekends are booking up fast.
I don't like using my phone on the bike as a GPS. I prefer a dedicated GPS unit. Waterproof, Usable with gloves, better routing(larger array of routing preferences), download routes from home computer, track logs, waypoints etc..

Though for the car I'm always looking for a better option. I keep coming back to Google Maps though. Tried Waze, Navigon and a few others, but I keep coming back to Google Maps. If you find that Maverick works well, let me know. I'll give it a shot.
