As promised, our next adventure vehicles are going to be…
Last week I not only dropped a bombshell on most of you, letting you know that we’re ready to take a break from boating, I also began laying a fairly-elaborate breadcrumb trail, leading you down a path to our announcing what our next big adventure is going to be. As it turns out, a few people actually guessed correctly after Saturday’s post. Congratulations to those who were able to put two and two together, read between the lines, and of course read the posts in their entirety rather than just looking at the photos and making guesses. 🙂
Our new adventure vehicles are going to be…
Custom, semi-fat mountain bikes!
Specifically, Tumbleweed Prospectors, built up by the bike’s designer, Daniel Molloy.
These bikes were our Christmas presents to one another. Where will our new human-powered vehicles take us? Without a doubt, to many exciting places, but that’s fodder for some future posts. At this very moment, the bikes have not yet been built, and in fact, the bike frames are still on a ship somewhere, en route to the US. That works out fine for us though as we still have a few hurdles to overcome before we’d be able to mount them, and begin our land-based travels. We are excited though!
“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” – Ernest Hemingway
