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.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Still broke as a joke in Morocco, but got a job as a director of a school, so hopefully that real adult money will start rollin in soon. There's a rainbow gathering in the desert at the end of next month. I want to go, but I need to start working and this school opens next month.

Found a good home for the beautiful cat and the boyfriend was not so nice, so it's another fresh start for me.

Out here tryin to keep it real

Best of luck and happy travels

Hey thanks for the recent uploads to the library, looks like useful stuff!
Nearly done with the electrical system of the van. 170Ah Lithium ion, 2/4K inverter, 400 watt of solar, 40A MPPT controller. Should be up and running (or explode) this weekend.

After that I have to finish the primary work table, which will be the last big piece of the build.
