What model Trek is that?

Who makes the paniers and rack?

What other goodies do you have on the bike that are not obvious to the novice eye?

Did you blog about your trip in the Baja? I would like to see anything you have written about this. Thanks. Hank

Rather than starting a new thread, I have a question about Florida.

I want to drive from North Carolina where I live to the west coast of Florida within the next 10 days. I am hoping to camp out of my P/U while doing long Gulf coastal day rides. Can someone who knows the area advise me as to the bike routes and roads which are bike friendly there please? Can reasonably priced campgrounds be found with vacancies this time of the year? TIA. Hank

If you still have this gear please email any photos you have of it to hank9752 at yahoo dot com and also your opinion as to whether or not it would fit on a Cruzbike, Sofrider, recumbent bike. See link: thank you.

Thank you all for the input. I will heed the advice given and not attempt to ride through Mexico.

I have crossed our beautiful American continent many times over the years by car, bus and airplane. I think it is now time to give it a shot by bicycle. I look forward to buying a Cruzbike Quest folding recumbent to see more and relieve the neck, arm, shoulder and back strain from riding my Roubaix Specialized road bike these past few years. At 66, I need and welcome all the comfort I can get.

As regards hammocks; in the Hennessy Hamock is one commited to sleeping on your back or possibly your side but certainly not your stomach? Since I sleep face down I imagine a hammock would not be for me. Is this the correct conclusion I should draw? TIA.

I am thinking of a trip from North Carolina to Central America starting this June 2011 as I sit here retired at Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. Is it foolhardy to even consider a bike trip through Mexico with all the drug related violence? TIA. Hank
