Among the items I wish I'd had would be ear plugs. I was at a town called Arlington OR camped out at the marina with a RR crossing a hundred feet away and interstate 84 fifty feet beyond that.
I feel your pain. From one night on the GAP last year:
This was not an isolated occurrence. Turn up your computer's volume to get the realistic effect.
For all those eager advocates of SPD clips, or any other mechanical method of attaching your feet to the pedals, here's something few of the clip using fraturnity rarely tell you. Unless you aquaint yourself at an early stage in your cycling life and feel very comfortable getting in and out of clips at split-second notice without having time to think you might end up as I did a few years back, running out of momentum on a steep hill and quite suddenly face down on the black-top.
I've cracked a steel frame, twice, without a load, or an accident-- just fatigue.
BS. You're just a CF chest beater. Steel has the least amount of fatigue of any material except for Titanium. ... [bunch of bragging deleted] And this why today steel is still the number 1 choice for a touring bike no matter the cost, from low end mass produced touring bikes in the $1400 range to the high $6,000 plus range for custom built touring bikes.
