Alaska bound

Back in September while down at our Hooks, Tx. yard, I met Friend and today John came by and I stopped him and had a chat.











John had been living in North Carolina and was heading for Alaska to live.









Presently he was going to Oklahoma to wait out the winter before heading up through the Dakotas, Canada and then to Alaska.










He was pulling a BURLY trailer carrying most of his equipment. A BURLY trailer is more of a city trailer for pulling children than one to use for "touring".










He said he had been touring before he lived in North Carolina and the trailer shows a lot of wear. He was wanting to replace it with a B.O.B. trailer.

Here is a link if you would like read about people that tour on bicycles. There are
more than 1300 tours on this site.

Thanks for the link. I added it to my favorites. I hope you have a wonderful and prosperous new year.

Well, that answers a question I've had about using a kid trailer for touring. Apparently it will work!
