OK, one more of my sidecar rig WUMPA. (Yeah, sidecar guys name their rigs.) This is the Snake River in the Hells Canyon region.




More pics from that same trip if you want 'em -- HERE.

It's both liberating and limiting. You're more limited in route selection than on 2 wheels, but you're liberated because it can safely carry much more stuff (plus your best buddy) and you can camp wherever the hell you want because you got everything you need on-board.

When I was younger, I didn't need much to camp comfortably. But now in my 60's, my "needs" have expanded. So for me, anyway, 3 wheels lets me get to places that I couldn't or wouldn't get to on 2. And no more worries about falling. Crashing, yes, but falling, no.

The Étang de Montady (the "pond of Montady") is a drained lagoon or wetland believed to have been constructed by the Visigoths and completed by monks during the 13th century. The area was drained by making radial ditches from a single center point out to the extremities. The water flows to this center point and is then drained through an underground culvert. The field plots are of a triangular configuration due to the radial lines from the center.

The Étang de Montady is near Colombiers, midway between Béziers and Narbonne, in southern France.

I just picked up my 04 adventure with 4400 miles on it a few months ago. I have only taken a few trips with it since.
