I don't know how much time you have to complete this essay.  Have you considered writing it all out, use all the information you have, then boil id down to the three most powerful arguments.  Sleep on it overnight and then give it your best shot.

Try sending an email to the editor of Oregon Cycling Magazine .  Also, try Mark Lancing:  Mark is a bicycle attorney and writer. Maybe he can provide you with the information you need.  

Let us know how you do.

REI does this sort of thing from time to time.  If one is within reach give them a call.

Check  I'm sure Ian will cut the axles to make your trailer whatever width you'd like.  I've towed one of them several thousand miles.

General Discussion / Money and Banks

One more thing.  Try to get your cash while the bank is open.  I once had a card not returned.  Another time the ATM was 20 minutes producing $100.  If it's a weekend or after hours, well....

Green River and the ATM..

This was in 2001, I think.  The bank there was Key Bank, our account was at First Interstate (now Wells Fargo) in Eugene, Oregon.  For some reason the ATM would not read the ATM card.  Our car was broken down and we were starting to owe people--cafe, motel, mechanic.  We finally got money wired from our bank.  If you should have to do this, the place holding your money identifies you by the amount, not your name.  So be certain you consider any transfer fees and such, or the person doing the calling for you will be looking for the wrong amount of our's.  We ordered $400 and forgot to deduct the $30 wire fee.

Yes, the young lady waiting tables in the cafe said it was 102 miles to the nearest movie.

But, it's such experiences that make good subjects around the fireplace when it's too cold to pedal a bike.

I ran across a bank in Green River, Utah that was not friendly toward my West Coast bank.  Be sure you start looking befo9re your funds are gone.  I didn't and it got ugly before it got better.

General Discussion / Knee injury

My wife injured her knee while cycling stoker position.  A retired Air Force doctor recommended Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSN, and Vitamin C.  It's available over the counter.  Ask you drugest where to find it. It works.  It's expensive, but after three years she is as good as new.  There is a piece here in Adventure Cyclist from several years back that touches on this condition.

True, different people seek different grades of comfort.  Being out of sight is most often the safest avenue.  As long as you don't leave anything behind you don't ruin it for the next person. :).


General Discussion / HELP! Being Harrased by Police!
« on: November 21, 2004, 06:17:24 pm »
Always seek permission.  In most casdes the police only want to know who you are.

But, for the times when you can't find a place, carry a 5'x7' tarp.  It's light, and it's small.  Rolling up in a tarp and laying the bike down will make you invisible in tall grass.

If you're along you hope it is a cop who harrasses you.


General Discussion / What really is Adventure?

Adventure is any activity that is far removed from the daily routine.  The more discomfort that is associated with said adventure, the longer it remains forefront in one's memory.
