This is the current bike/set up I'm riding. It's actually @Matt Derrick bike, he was so generous to let me borrow it, so I'm taking it for a tour currently. Thanks again Matt!

fuck man, aaahhh i miss that bike. i'm really glad to see it lives on and is going on some awesome adventures. did you ever go to ragbrai?
Hell yeah man it's treating me good so far. Carrying a new chain and 2 new tires with me, can't believe the carcass hasn't shredded off the rear tire yet. It's cracked along the whole circumference, just won't give up! I'm running it till it goes! Ragbrai is July 21-27, and fuck yes I'm riding it this year! After that I hope to start making my way to the desert sometime mid August. Going to have to figure out how to get some more funds along the way if I want to be a lazy bookworm again this winter! Hope to see you there man!

Did a 1,000 miles this summer thru the NY southern tier Syracuse to Olean and the Adirondacks. I surprised myself being 65 that physical problems. I felt healthier biking 8-10 hours a day, rather than sitting home on my ass. I had a custom back rim built [Rick Bikes Buffalo is the best] with heavy duty spokes and a double walled rim.The back rim takes on such stress you can blow spokes but I had no problems with my heavy duty rims. Double Kevlar Vittorian Randonneur tires kept me flat free. My bike is a 10 year old Raleigh Route 1 with 20,000 miles on it. Everything has been replaced 3x.

This is a bike I rode from Mississippi to Orlando and back six or so years ago. Sold it to a friend after the trip and went west to Portland. Recently moved back and was shocked to find that he still had it and being the nice guy he is he sold it back for what I could give him. Tried to ride to Miami, but found myself giving up only as far as Fort Walton Beach. Rode back. Tried again to get out of Mississippi and rode via hwy-90 to Corona lockdown New Orleans. Spent the days riding around sweating and feeling to worn out from riding around and sweating to skateboard at the skatepark which was the only reason what for I even went. Found a schoolbus at a closed catholic school in city park to sleep in at night. Rode in just after dark and put all my stuff on the bus and put the bike under the bus. Slept across the row of seats straight as a board. God it was hot. After a couple days of that I realised it wasn't workin out and when I stopped lying to my poor mother about how well it was going and how the girl I knew in town was letting me crash on her porch, she drove her seventy year old derriere the two hours from biloxi and thats when I finally opened up a bit about how I'm at a loss for how to keep living after setting myself up to lose so many times. Sure hate askin for a ride, but it sure was nice having mommy come pick me up. This was a good bike back then and it's still a good bike, but it ain't takin me nowhere now. Anyhow, some photos.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
