Cycling Along The Way...

My photo
Silver City, NM, United States
Riders of the wheel. Racers, Roadies, Mountain bikers, Touring cyclists, Commuters, and others. Diamond frames, recumbents, trikes, and more. Sharing a web of connections often misunderstood or unappreciated by those who don't ride. Herewith, my attempt to share some of the more rational thoughts that flit around inside my head while bicycling, knocking back a brew or three, or just thinking about life. Reviews of bicycles, gear, touring, and more, plus some unsolicited posts about people, politics, and philosophy. Other things, too. Me: retired, gave up my TV in 1988, avid cyclist, several cross country tours completed with more to come. Your thoughts?

PABLO y ETIENNE: Part II Videos And Photos

Had to exit yesterday's post to get dinner started.  Life as a houseboy has it's requirements.  Having dinner ready is one of them.  So, today's post will have videos and photos from Pablo (28 yrs old) and Etienne's (26 yrs old) visit with us in Silver City, NM.  As I said in my previous post, these two are headed to Tierra del Fuego.  Having them stay at our house for 3 nights was great.  Funny guys on a long journey.  As representatives of their generation, they do it well and give a glimmer of hope for the future...that it will be brighter.

Ok, on with the show..These videos are very short.  Following the videos are some more photos..

Ah, the long process of packing the bikes.
More bike packing..
Mas bike packing
And more bike packing
Heading down the road...to Tierra del Fuego!
Some photos then a tune to exit with...!

Pablo has the same kind of panniers that I have...Arkels

Scrappy doing what he does best...sleeping on his head!  Why do cats sleep like that?
Alright, a bit of humor and a tune for Etienne and Pablo..."Rawhide" performed by The Blues Brothers!  Good theme for your videos, Etienne!  Enjoy...
