      Something to ponder?

      A Scrab trike,

      ... Mid-Drive Electric assist?

      A B.O.B. Trailer,

      A tent ... REI's Hobitat?

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      OK, now add that all up.
      Toss in 26" wheels all the way around.
      Add a lighting kit.
      And build a set of pop-up poles or racks to carry long items
      overhead. Like kiyaks or canvas covers.

      Top it off with a good set of Uni-Solar Flex panels and/or an Air-X
      to set up at camp.

      Food for Thought?

        Hi Dancer,
        Not a bad set-up! Right now most of my energy is going into investigating whether I want to rig a bike with a hub motor for commuting or buy a scooter. I'm leaning towards the scooter as I start work most days by 7:20 a.m. and need to get there quickly. Plus Amarillo's streets aren't really conducive to safe biking. Really need to keep up with the flow of traffic. Google "Honda Big Ruckus" and you'll see the scooter that I'm in love with! As much as I would like to hit the road on a trike it doesn't look like it's in the cards for years to come. But I do hope that all the members here will share their ideas for bike camping!

        Regards,
        Wade
