Routes / Practical camping advice for Route 66
« on: August 01, 2016, 05:01:14 pm »
I'm looking for real world info for camping along Route 66
   Most of what I've read on the route references hotels, etc.   (I've yet to order the ACA maps, so I'm assuming options are available.)

Connecting ACA Routes / Trans AM Kentucky - off-route to Louisville
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:15:49 am »
Curious is anyone has any suggestions on best to head to Louisville from the mapped Trans-AM Section for Kentucky.  It looks close enough to just find a road and have at it, but it someone has a road in mind that's better than another, I'd be interested to know,


Cheers,

Jason

Classifieds / SOLD: Old Man Mountain Rack Set: Front and Rear
« on: May 10, 2012, 02:09:27 pm »
I am selling my OMM (old man mountain) racks as a set - both front and rear:

Front:  Sherpa (700c/29er): comes with mounts to attached to front hub - INCLUDES extra-long skewer.  I am including L-shaped brackets that allow "extenders" to attached to Canti-mounts

Rear:  Sherpa (700c/29er):  This is a the latest/newest version of the Sherpa.  I have had it about 2 months, as a result of a warranty replacement for my previous Sherpa.  The new version is wider, a tad longer, with larger diameter tubing.  BADASS!!!.  The rack will come with two attachment options:  1) To mount to hub (extra-long skewer NOT included) 2) Shorter mounts that attached to rack-mounts on frame. (options shown in photo)

I am the original owner on both:  They've been used, but not abused.  All bolts have been replaced as of three months ago.  Extenders on rear rack are less than 3 weeks old.

$120.00 plus shipping gives you the set.  PM me with any questions

Routes / Couple of questions
« on: August 08, 2009, 11:00:49 am »
I've spent a good bit of time here lately researching a transamerican route.  I'm currently living in Atlanta, and am entertaining (planning) to make a go for Vancouver.

I'm curious if anyone has made a trip west, from Atlanta.  I assume that I could go from Atlanta to Tupelo, MS on a my own route, then get on course with one of the ASA maps through to vancouver.  Just wonder what would be the best route from Atlanta to MS (or somewhere perhaps better...)

Cheers,

j
