Hiking & biking to magoebas
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee

My pony packed for my ride to the west coast and back.... about 3 weeks and 5000kms later, all i was short of was something decent to sit on around the campfire....

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.
