    Just walking around outside the RV park we are at gets our shoes filled with thorns. I'm leery now with the threat of the deadly and aggressive Mohave Green rattler roaming around now that the weather is warming up. Need to get some snake shot for the 9.

    That looks like fun. I think those bikes cost over $1000 or more.

    Dry heat is very tolerable. 95 is comfortable in the shade.

    They probably have a $1000 in gear and accessories on $3000 to $6000 bikes. If you want to trust your equipment and have the most comfort and enjoyment you drop the coin. If you want mechanicals and heavy load you go cheap.

    This Salsa frame is one of the cheapest good bikes for bikepacking. About $500 for the frame.

    Kinda want to look into this.

    I'm shopping for an overland vehicle that is low key. I really want a bike that can be broken down and stored inside. Bike to fit the range and cargo capacity between hiking and a motor vehicle. I'd even be open to the ones with the batteries.

    I'm hitting this up...
