Have you considered taking the Western Express from Pueblo, instead of going up to Colorado Springs?

what about when it starts thunder and lightning and your stuck in the middle of no where with no cover?
What the heck do you do? just keep peddling and hope for the best?!
Take the same precautions you would in your daily schedule to stay safe. If a situation doesn't seem right move on. Listen to your gut reaction.
The math is irrefutable: 2 pounds of rubber is less than 1% of the total estimated mass of 300 pounds, 0.067. Thirty-two ounces is roughly two liters of water. That delta of the effort to move this mass uphill or forward cannot be perceived. Nor does it translate directly into a 1% change in the total energy required to travel the same distance.
the tradeoff for hauling this additional mass may be one or ten fewer flats across the trip but no one can predict results based only on a tire's marketing or actual physical composition. Many nearly invisible, common and largely unavoidable objects on the nation's roadways will easily penetrate any flat resistant material.
The above statement is an exageration. I guess this person would claim a person who has $2002 is by far richer than someone with only $2000. I imagine the Schmidt hub is a bit better than the other generator hubs. For this tiny bit extra you pay 100% more in price. There are many bicyclists who pay $1000+ to save 100 grams on their bike. Worth it?
... of hub generators and by far the SON is the best:
I used fly fishing thread and spar urethene.

1. The true a**h**e: These guys drive close or yell at you or stick their dog's head out the window at you, just to throw you off kilter. There's one of these every hundred miles in suburban/rural areas.
2. The clueless: Thinks that since you're riding fairly close to the white line he(she) can pass you within 6 inches, no problem. One every 20 miles.
