thinking about vietnam on bike (time constraints might lead to motorcycle tho)

Steve, how is bike touring in Japan? Cycling round Hokkaido feels like it might be a great thing.

i had an idea: bike from MPLS to Spearfish Canyon, SD. FedEx my sport climbing gear ahead of me, climb for a week or so, bike back!

also: spokane to the bugaboos, climb a spire, etc.

really taken with this bike tour + climbing idea

How much gear do you need for bolt clipping? haul it with you.

draws, harness, belay tool, shoes, rope, w33d

it's really the rope that'd be a pain: heavy, takes up space. def doable with a trailer, but i don't have a trailer (or panniers or racks, for that matter. or the time, probably)

god that'd be so fun, tho

Sounds Awesome, I think my climbing days are well behind me but I'd hold a rope and shout things.

Come and do DC to pittsburgh with us.
