This forum has been very helpful to me. I waste alot of time on other bicycle forums that seem to be over ran with d**k and fart jokes, and people bragging about money they've spent. I really am thankful for the wealth of useful information present here. I know if I have a question Google will not answer, then an experienced tourer will be happy to provide advice here without mocking what I'm doing or what I'm about.
If you have a valid question about bicycle touring, feel free to post. If no one does, then there is no reason to panic. I don't know why you'd use a thread to bash the forum that allowed you to post it. Also FWIW I watched "Captain Ron" last night and think sailing looks fun.
