Ok, I am now on self-powered wheels again ...

Last week I started a fun little endeavor, I went looking for my perfect Commuting / Touring /all around bike. After asking around eventually I found my gem, an old 90s hybrid bike laying in the back room of a buddies shop. Some tough bargaining later we settled for an even 500 pesos :-) .

I went looking for my bike tools and started trying to put something usable together, of course one thing lead to another and I finished painting the thing, some bargaining later (And another hard earned 250 pesos) allowed me to finish the Almost Surly bike.

Drifting, slowly drifting ....

Over the last few months I have been slowly drifting away from the Jeeperos/Rockcrawlers mindset and more into long expedition type travel, however lately I have gotten this newly found desire to get back on my beloved bicycles, Is it the $5 Dollar tread on expedition portal? Is it the perceived achievement of going camping on a Bicycle?.

Cars give you so much mobility and flexibility on travel, but at the same time isolate you from the true essence of the people and its surroundings, maybe cars are only great for destination travel???

Seems to me, after reading countless travel blogs, that the simpler the equipment the more personal the travel becomes.

Who knows?, but after last week travel, I just feel the need to ditch the car and the luxuries of 500 pounds of equipment and just go at it as simple as possible.
