This cool rig caught my attention, so I turned around to take a picture of frugal travel. I took his picture without his permission because he was turned away. He turned as I took the picture. Oh, that embarrassed me!
I tried to recover. "I like that rig you have."
"It seemed about right to me."
"Where are you headed?"
"I am going to Florida. It's getting too cold up here."
"It is cold. Good luck on your travels."
And, I left, just like that. Looking at his picture tonight, I think I missed a good story or missed getting killed by a crazy person. At any rate, there was no place for us to talk since he was on the side of the road and it was a ways to anywhere!
When I saw him, he was pushing the bike uphill with one hand pushing on the seat. When I left him, he was pushing the bike uphill with one hand pushing on the seat. He was struggling and old. That bothered me.I wonder if he knows the hills that await him for fifty miles toward Birmingham. It is all gently rolling hills, beautiful scenery but not pushing a bike.
Maybe someone with a truck will give him, his bike, and rig a lift.
Go HERE to see the camera and paracord bracelet I am giving away. I am adding a battery charger!
Someone look over his rig and give me some insight on what he has, please. What kind of tires? The wagons? The bike? Why does he have those pool noodles? Is there a tent in there? The kitchen sink?
