Re: I was *really* bored at work....

Well I gave the Riviera alcohol stove a go. The burner that came with it is not that great, so I replaced it with an old military Svea alcohol burner. Works much better. http://oi60.tinypic.com/so1egj.jpg http://oi61.tinypic.com/w8uys8.jpg The original burner. http://oi57.tinypic.com/23hsrhu.jpg mmm...

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

It's a great idea. Nice way to bike hike into some of the lesser traveled areas. Especially if you start at the higher elevations and coast your way down :o 8-) The most white knuckling, butt puckering, re-evaluate your life thing happened to me on one of those rail bikes. It involved a 4% grade, 2...

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

For sure, highrails are cool. That bus looks like it could be used for company outings along the rails in some remote areas out west. Attach a caboose to it for use as the kitchen and latrine. Must be nice to be on the road, fun and fancy free. Let us know when you get settled in with the bees. Gee...
