“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it." -Terry Pratchett

I don't smoke cigarettes, but about once a month or longer, I just need to relax with a good cigar or my trusty old pipe. Since my cancer 2 years ago, Amanda made me cut WAAAYYYYY back . I am not addicted though, and could only imagine trying to stop once I was. Soda takes me forever to quite.
Psalm 19:1-3 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."

This is the same as backpacking, I would guess.
Welcome aboard Narwhalin. It's nice to see another bike tourer on here. I've been doing it since the seventies. Even though I've been doing it along time, I still eye ball the gear on every trip trying to figure out what I can do without or what will work better. It's a disease which knows no cure!
I ride a English touring. You can see my set up at http://www.petritsch.net/jarvis
If you must choose between two evils, opt for the one you've never tried before
That's a real nice lookin' setup you have there! I understand what you mean about constantly rethinking what is best, what you need, etc.! I guess I know what I can look forward to for the next 30 years! LOL
