Hummm...looks like he need to grab another link in that WD chain to get the tongue up a bit :mrgreen:

On a more serious note I met a fellow in Yellowstone some years back who was in the process of biking across the country after his wife had kicked him out. He had everything he owned in a trailer (about 6 x 6 feet) and he was riding a 24" kids type 3 speed bicycle with fat tires on it. He had started in LA California and had made it to Yellowstone by zig-zagging across the country and planned on being in Washington DC in time to find a teaching job in the fall. This guy had leg muscles like I've never seen from pedaling that thing up those mountain grades. He was camping in a 10 foot canvas tent and when he left Madison Junction to ride into West Yellowstone for supper that night he went into his tent and came out dressed in a suit and tie before he pedaled off into the sunset. He was one of the more INTERESTING characters I've met on the road.

Oh, the water will eventually stop him!

I guess he has his kid riding his bike along side the trailer because it is illeagle to have passengers in the trailer while towing. You know, when traveling and that high rate of speed he will have some serious sway so it is better no one is in that trailer!
