General Discussion / Re: That go-to meal
« Last post by johnsondasw on November 23, 2014, 11:46:32 pm »
Even after a hard day of touring, I can't choke down cans of chili or spaghetti.  So my go-to meal requires more work--spaghetti made from noodles, a package of beef and a jar of spaghetti sauce.  On tour, I stop at a local grocery and buy these ingredients late in the afternoon and cook at the camp.  Of course, both the noodles and meat have to be cooked, but it really is easy and so much more palatable than the cans.  I always add plenty of cheese to the meal before eating.

Brown it in a skillet with oil if you have it.
Add chopped onion and chopped green pepper and saute.
Pour in a can of stewed tomatoes
Simmer covered.
You can add spices if you have them.

Routes / Southern Tier Section 4 Map 56 and 57 and Beyond

I am planning our trip in 2015 across the US using the Southern Tier. The Adventurecycling routing through Texas seems absurd. The road travels North and South more than it goes east.

Obvious roads are bypassed and huge diversions created for no obvious reason.

Kerville to Fredericksburg , TX is the place to look.

What is wrong with Highway 16 which goes almost directly to Fredericksburg, for instance?

I see that Texas does not explicitly prohibit cyclists from riding on the Interstates. I think this seems to be an obvious alternative to the absurd routing taken by the adventurecycling route

Does anybody have a comment on all this or am I missing something obvious?

Regards,

Roger

Hi Rachel,

I am glad to hear Catherine and others encourage the solo approach. You can spend your life worrying about the "what ifs" and constant concern about the rare event but getting out there is the important part of the equation. Your personal safety is about maintaining some situational awareness, practicing reasonablness with regard to risk management, and a little bit of responsible planning. The rest is about the fun of the adventure. Don't let the doomsday preppers, conspiracy theorists, and generally negative people set the bar for how you live your life.

There never seems to be a Subway when I need one, though!
You must ride is some very remote areas.  Those things are EVERYWHERE.

My go-to meal is one Subway foot-long sandwich. Ingredients: one Subway foot-long sandwich.

There never seems to be a Subway when I need one, though!

My go-to is a lunch with a packet of tuna or chicken, an apple, and some sharp cheddar cheese.  Add in some Oreos of Fig Newtons for dessert, if there are any left!
