    Cancer on the road

    I know that they very in quality quite a bit, but my buddy, now deceased, had only the highest praise for the quality of care he received from his local VA, which was Palo Alto. They did everything way beyond what he expected of them. Things change, and you may be surprised.

    Phuen, I will leave this thread alone - but I feel that StP is a big enough, and open - minded enough place that dissenting opinions can and should have a voice. We shouldn’t only tolerate people who agree with our own point of view, should we?

    Wildroots Homestead, North Carolina.

    My guess ? - A few people with some remote, hard-to-improve land, few resources to do so, who open their property to others for part of the year so long as you can provide for yourself, in order to get, free of charge,their labor to accomplish the improvements they want done. All under the guise...

    Greatest backpack ever made?

    I just gifted this past week a Kajka 65 to a train-hopper friend. The Fjallraven had been recommended to me by another train-hopping friend, but he’d never actually owned one. I will tell you, they are built military tough, but that pack weighed 3200 grams - that is just over 7 lbs., way too...

    Hey folks, let me briefly introduce myself.

    You said briefly . . . Heh heh heh. Welcome to StP. I am almost 60, just started riding this year. Have done 3 rides. I am short, a bit of a portly fellow. But, riding has motivated me to join a gym, watch what I am eating, and I am losing weight. If I can do it, so can you.

    Juan, if you make it up, I’m not too far from Redding, I’ll chip in for supplies, especially the smell of ass, that’s always free. OTD, I am about as cranky, and I can’t blame it on drink as I do not drink hardly at all. Must be the caffeine I’m addicted to.

    I currently have , I think, a power bank that is about 22000 mah, chosen for its’ high ratings with regard to waterproofness, and shock resistance, since I beat the shit out of stuff, also . But, since it works perfectly and is hardly used, cannot justify spending more money now.
