I'd also like to here about stuff you thought was neat and never really worked or things you're in love with.

What kind of tent have you got there?
Hi Ronnie
Hey I appreciate the feedback.
I tend to concentrate an all the exciting stuff & leave out the other stuff.

When I finish this report I detail all that adventure including the episodes where I pulled on my front brake lever & it just pulled right to the bar.
& when the back brake (& I have ABS) completely locked up & stayed locked up.

My Tent is a Woods. From Canadian Tire. Fantastic. I can set it up in ~ 2 minutes + 4 if I need the fly. 5 minutes to pack up. I actually videoed setting it up in Monument valley if you want to see it.

Sure, let's see the video. How is it holding up against rain, bugs and foot traffic?

Havin some trouble uploading the video.
Tent is holding up great against everything.
Well except when it just blew down from the wind last week. Because I didn't have the fly on.
The fly strengthens the structure.

Last of Monument Valley


Love this picture of my tent & bike.


New Friends from Switzerland, Regine und Walter Muller. A very enthusiastic couple. They toured right across Canada & were now heading south with the weather.
They were "Lovin it" . They have thier own awsome report going. www.together-on-the-way.ch
Hello Regine und Walter Muller. It was a pleasure meeting you. I hope to visit you in Switzerland in a few years. Enjoy North America.

I can't believe it, your tent is gone with the wind and you still manage to take ten great shots before breakfast. :)

Bluhduh

:)
Not done reporting Fly-ride 10 yet.

However I did just fly back to Salt Lake City today. Fly-ride 11.

This one has got off to a very adventurous start, or should I say stop.

Got stopped at U.S. customs & taken in for interrogation. :(

Lost my Passport!!!
