This is the last regular post on the Blog until October 7, 2013. The West Coast tour will be documented on the Trip Journal page.
The most often asked question I get regarding the tour is shown below along with the answer I give.
Q. Who are you going with?
A. I am going with ME and MYSELF. ME is very complicated. MYSELF is much easier to get along with...always agrees with me, never complains, not necessary to feed him, and enjoys riding with me.
At the end of a day's ride, I will reserve one of the bottle cages for a Tecate or a Sapporo.

Trying out some ideas for shooting hands-free video using my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS19 camera for the upcoming bike tour. Being totally self-supported and traveling alone, it takes a bit of creativity. The back of the Giro helmet has a Cateye red LED flasher mounted with zip ties (a safety item to use on the open road). Top of helmet has a Joby GorillaPod attached to the helmet with zip ties on which the camera mounts. This mount would be used mostly for off-bike video verite scenes. On the left hand side of the helmet, there is a mirror mounted with zip ties made by Efficient Velo Tools LLC. This is unique mirror allows the rider to see what is coming from behind.
