Where's the fishin' pole, lantern, cooler full 'o beer?


BTW - Why is there an air freshener hanging on your bars?

  • Looking at a compact pole
  • Got candles, and a flashlight from Ozark
  • They sell beer where I'm goin'

As for the air freshner, saw it in Repo Man and always thought it was a little different!

Very nice! Mind giving details on what your sleeping bag and road ready bag are? I'm still trying to figure out what I want/need.

Sleeping bag is a Woods brand 40* Bag. Think I got it from Bean or REI. 6 x 14" packed. I pack a space blanket just incase it gets a little too cold.

The Road Ready bag is a 6 x 13 tube bag. Real simple but nice. Got it a a bike show. The dude makes them in all different sizes.
