Hey travelers :D So I have this piece of shit van that I am pretty over with. Not sure how much I'm gonna get out of it when I sell it. But I was thinking about some bike touring a bit and I was wondering if I could pick your brains? Lol.

Anyone tour with a dog? Is a trailer the best approach to keep my furry kid happy? Your experiences? With dog in mind should I hold onto my tent or just settle for a tarp?

Anyone tour with a motorized bike? Easy to jug? How hard is it to mechanically maintain on the road?

If there's anything else that you can suggest... please do :D

Thank you guys!!!

Arapala is our resident biking Guru and has a website called Trekking Buddha

You know about Bicas here in Tucson don't you? You can volunteer your time with them and then they will give you everything you need to build your own bike how you want it.

Oh, and if you haven't it might be worth checking out what the current scrap rate is. Depending on how much of a piece of shit it is you may get more that way.

I'm on several bicycle forums and there are some long distance people on there (and short distance) who bike with their furry friends, either in a basket, trailer or a baby cart behind the bike. Will look at what they have and post it. Think I have posted some links to those sites before though but will look.

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
    $115.00 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.
