While I'm sure that was a light hearted jab at "trailer people" (I have two), I'll be quick to point out that the FLT gallery isn't a good barometer to judge the trailer to pannier ratio. Thankfully, it was never intended to be any kind of barometer.
Thanks so much for the kind words.
Such comments have been my payment for bringing this gallery to life, aside from the fun and satisfaction that comes with being able to speak with so many *of us*. FLT started as my meager gift to touring. However, I only see myself as the facilitator and caretaker, thinking ownership is among all that enjoy what these photos bring to them.
It's been amazing to read how much FLT means to many that have emailed. I never imagined doing this would bring dispatches from fellow tourers speaking of revelations, renewed motivation, awe in places they've never seen and so on. Many simply like watching what's coming in from across the pond, whichever side of the pond they're on.
I have a number of new submissions to consider and should have time for posting them this afternoon. Perhaps time to add a couple of additional links to contributor's pages as well.
